PORT ALLEN - State Police arrested four Florida residents after narcotics agents found 20 pounds of drugs during traffic stops in West Baton Rouge Parish, a haul worth half-a-million dollars.

Troopers said 32-year-old Tavis Williams, 43-year-old Maurice Jackson, 53-year-old Cecil Saddler, and 30-year-old Wilhelmina Foster worked together to try and drive the drugs through Louisiana in two vehicles.

During the traffic stops troopers said they brought in a Baton Rouge Police K-9 to check Williams' vehicle, and the K-9 alerted them that drugs were present. Investigators said they found 20 pounds of a mixed powder with heroin, meth, and ecstasy hidden in a duffle bag.

State Police said when mixed together the drugs create a designer narcotic called "Molly," and the amount being transported had a street value of around $500,000.

Troopers booked the four into the West Baton Rouge Parish jail on traffic violations and drug possession charges.
