NATALBANY - Sheriff's deputies said a busted bumper helped them catch a Tangipahoa Parish woman carrying drugs and facing a number of outstanding warrants.

Deputies arrested Janavieve Bicknell, 26, after the traffic stop near Natalbany Sunday night.

A deputy said he was patrolling on Highway 1064 when he saw a black SUV driving along with its front bumper hanging down and beating the tires as it went down the road. The deputy stopped the vehicle, which he said Bicknell was driving.

The deputy said Bicknell was unable to show her license and registration, and he learned she had numerous warrants out for her arrest. She was also wanted for questioning in reference to a recent burglary.

The deputy took Bicknell into custody. Investigators said when they searched the vehicle further they also found drug paraphernalia and a small amount of what they suspected was meth.

Bicknell was booked into the parish prison and charged with drug possession and driving with a suspended license.
