Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says two Grambling men were arrested Monday night for possession of illegal drugs with the intent to distribute following a traffic stop on Interstate 20.

Bobbie G. Pruitt, 56, of the 100 block of Murline St. in Grambling, and Darrell Williams, 45, of the 100 block of Maine St. in Grambling, were traveling westbound on Interstate 30 when Pruitt was stopped by Bossier deputies for riding on the fog line for nearly 100 yards. When deputies made contact with Pruitt, he consented to a search of his vehicle. A K-9 deputy found one baggie of suspected crack cocaine and suspected Lortab. Both Pruitt and Williams, a passenger in the vehicle, denied the drugs belonged to them.

Deputies also found a glass smoking device with residue under the passenger seat after Williams told them he put a pipe underneath his seat.

Pruitt and Williams were charged with possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute and possession of Lortab with the intent to distribute. Pruitt was also charged with improper lane use, while Williams was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

They were transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking; Pruitt’s bond is set at $6,200, while Williams’ bond is $6,500.
