Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Shreveport man and a Hosston man were arrested on drug charges and driving infractions on separate occasions over the weekend.

Christopher N. Zamora, 22, of the 1000 block of Quail Creek in Shreveport, was driving east on Highway 80 in Haughton late Friday night with an expired license tag and expired motor vehicle inspection. When the deputy made contact with Zamora, who was traveling with his 8-month-old daughter, the driver consented to a search of his vehicle. The deputy recovered one suspected marijuana joint and three suspected marijuana roaches in a side compartment with the infant’s stuffed animals. The deputy also discovered Zamora had four active warrants out of Shreveport.

Alex Rogers, 20, of the 15000 block of Winn School Road in Hosston, was driving erratically heading west on I-220 Saturday night when deputies initiated a traffic stop. Deputies found Rogers was driving with an expired motor vehicle inspection, and he had no proof of insurance. When he gave a verbal consent to search his vehicle, deputies found three grams of suspected marijuana in a pill bottle and a glass smoking pipe under the driver’s seat. They also found an open bottle of Seagram’s whiskey in the vehicle.
