A routine traffic stop led police to over $2,000 worth of marijuana in Jefferson Parish.

According to police, 26-year-old Alfredo Manzanares was stopped for illegal window tint on Loyola Drive, but police found much more than they expected in his car.

During the stop, officers learned Manzanares, a Metairie resident, was driving with a suspended license and had outstanding traffic attachments from Jefferson Parish.

Officers also found 1.6 lbs. of marijuana in the car along with a scale. Police say the confiscated drug has a street value of $2,100.

Officers booked Manzaneres into the Jefferson Parish Jail with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal window tent and driving with a suspended driver’s license.

    When stuffing soft-shell crabs, I always look for the females of the species first. They not only have that wonderful flavor, but they are usually full of the rich roe that was made famous in she-crab soup. You can always tell the females prior to cooking. They’re the ones with their fingernails painted red. If you don’t believe me, look for yourself next time.
