The number one way to catch criminals these days seems to be the old reliable "random traffic stop." It's become an almost weekly occurrence along I-10. This week's random traffic stop winners are Gerald and Laquanda Brown of Independence. Their prize is three hots and a cot.

Gerald and Laquonda were traveling down I-10 when they were pulled over for a traffic violation. The officer who pulled them over, Cpl. Chad Booth, noticed that the occupants of the car seemed to be a bit nervous plus Booth added that the car smelled like pot. Well, there's your probable cause, so a search ensued and turned up 10 pounds of raw marijuana.

Instead of just getting a traffic ticket, the Browns were booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and are being held on $25,000 bond each. Happy motoring, my friends.
