Speeding, Drugs and Body Armor Seized

Two men have been arrested Thursday on separate occasions for various drug charges, possession of a bullet proof vest and others after deputies pulled them over for excessive speed. 

Raymond J. Hymes III, 41, of Natchitoches, was caught driving 72 miles per hour in a 55 MPH zone northbound on Highway 71 Thursday morning.  When the deputy made contact with Hymes, he found a clear plastic baggie containing suspected marijuana on his person.  A search of his vehicle found two cigars that Hymes admitted he was going to use to smoke the marijuana.  The deputy also found body armor in his trunk, which is illegal to use or possess with the conviction of certain other crimes.  A check of Hymes’ record found he had a previous felony drug arrest in 2009, as well as an active warrant from the Shreveport Marshals Office.   Hymes was arrested for possession of Schedule I (marijuana) – 2nd offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, speeding, unlawful possession of body armor and the fugitive warrant out of Shreveport.  He was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking, and his bond is pending. 

On Thursday afternoon, Adrian D. Manning, 22, of the 100 block of S. Perrin St. in Plain Dealing, was stopped for traveling 32 miles per hour in a 20 MPH zone northbound on S. Perrin St.  A check of Manning’s record revealed he was driving under suspension and with switched plates.  The check also found he had multiple arrest warrants for various drug charges and driving violations.  Manning was charged with driving under suspension, speeding, switched plates and six warrants for failure to appear on charges of three counts of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, speeding and obstruction of view.  He was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking; his bond is set at $24,600.
