LABADIEVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) – A traffic stop ended with the seizure of 15 grams of suspected cocaine and Alfred James Adams, 45, of Labadieville in custody.

  • Possession of cocaine with intent to distribute
  • Transaction involving proceeds from controlled dangerous substance activity
  • Driving under a suspended driver’s license
  • Driving on roadway laned for traffic
