JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) -

A Florida man was arrested on drug charges following a traffic stop on I-10 near Jennings. On Saturday, February 22, 2014, the Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office pulled observed a small white vehicle traveling east bound speeding 82 miles per hour in a 70 mph zone on I-10 east bound near milepost 63.

Upon making contact with the driver the deputy could smell a odor of burnt marijuana emitting from the interior of the vehicle. The deputy asked the driver for his driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance.  The driver identified himself as David Bruce McMann, 63, of Miami, Florida. McMann was unable to produce a driver's license.  Dispatch advised McMann's license was expired.

During a search of the vehicle deputies located a 16 ounce can of Coors Light in the center console.  The can was cold and open deputies also  located a glass smoking pipe containing green vegetable matter believed to be marijuana.  Deputies then opened the center console and located a clear plastic bag containing green vegetable matter and a glass jar containing green vegetable matter all believed to be marijuana.  Between the driver's seat and center console they discovered a Ruger Semi Automatic handgun.   All contraband was seized and McMann was placed under arrest.

McMann was transported to Jefferson Davis Parish Jail where he was booked on the charges of Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession of a Firearm in the presence of CDS.

McMann was released due to lack of bed space in the jail.
