Fifteen pounds of pot concealed in a gift-wrapped box was seized by Caddo-Shreveport narcotics agents during a traffic stop on Sunday.

Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator and Shreveport Police Chief Alan Crump said two people were arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. The arrestees were identified as Robert Mayfield, 26, and Ronda Robinson, 26, both of 2978 Barron Road in Keithville. They were also charged with the illegal use of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of someone under the age of 17.

Agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit conducted a traffic stop on a Nissan Altima driven by Robinson in the 3100 block of Barron Road Sunday evening. Mayfield and two juvenile girls, ages 3 and 5, were passengers in the vehicle. Caddo Sheriff’s K-9 Deputy Marcus Jeansonne and his dog, Chuck, were called to the scene, and Chuck alerted on the vehicle for suspected narcotics. During a search of the car, the “gift” containing approximately 15 pounds of suspected high-grade marijuana was located in the trunk. The value of the marijuana is $168,000. 

Robinson and Mayfield were booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.
