The following is a news release from the Lake Charles Police Department:

On Thursday, May 30, a criminal patrol officer for the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force stopped a passenger vehicle on I-10 for a traffic violation. During the traffic stop, the officer learned that the driver, Dalisha Robert, was not the owner of the vehicle.

Following the traffic stop, the officer allowed his canine to sniff the air around the vehicle driven by Robert. The canine responded, indicating the odor of a controlled substance was present, and a subsequent search of the vehicle revealed an electronically controlled false compartment in the vehicle's dash.

The compartment contained 13 cellophane wrapped packages of compressed white powder that field tested positive for cocaine. The packages together weighed approximately 13 kilograms.

Robert was booked into the CCC for possession of cocaine over 400 grams.

Judge Kent Savoie set Robert's bond at $50,000.
