NATCHITOCHES, LA (KSLA) -

A man is behind bars on several drug charges after a traffic stop in Natchitoches Parish Thursday night.

John Michael Jones Jr., 28, of Las Vegas, NV, is charged with possession of CDS Schedule I MDMA with intent to distribute, possession of CDS I marijuana, possession of CDS schedule IV alprazolam, possession of drug paraphernalia, speeding and driving under suspension.

Natchitoches deputies stopped Jones in a 2016 Fiat for speeding on Interstate 49 near Natchitoches around 5:10 p.m. Thursday.

Deputies say a computer background check revealed Jones driver’s license was suspended and had a lengthy prior criminal history.

Criminal Patrol Units were called to search the vehicle after a K-9 unit smelt narcotics.

Police say they found about 12.8 grams or 46 tabs of suspected DMA ecstasy, suspected marijuana, suspected alprazolam, drug paraphernalia and weighing scales.

Jones was taken to Natchitoches Detention Center and is awaiting bond.
