The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says an agent smelled marijuana while giving a ride to a distressed motorist. Enforcement spokesman Adam Einck says agents later arrested three Mississippi men, one of them wanted on a murder charge in Mississippi.

Einck says Sgt. Joe Chandler saw three men walking from a vehicle on the side of Highway 65 in St. Joseph on Tuesday, asked if they needed help and drove one to a gas station. Einck says a senior agent returned with them to the stalled vehicle, where the agents found cocaine and a loaded semi-automatic pistol.

Einck says all three had records and were booked with possessing cocaine and possessing a firearm after a felony conviction. He says one is awaiting extradition to Mississippi on a murder charge.
