Mother and daughter arrested for meth possession
PRAIRIEVILLE - A mother and daughter were arrested on drug charges including possession of crystal meth after patrolling deputies pulled them over for only having one working headlight on Tuesday night.
Chief Deputy Tony Bacala of the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office said detectives were conducting the traffic stop when they noticed the occupants of the vehicle, 54-year-old Terry Grosse and 33-year-old Christina Grosse, to be very nervous. During the investigation, detectives found the vehicle to be uninsured and also located a pill bottle containing an anti-anxiety medication, marketed as BuSpar®, that was not legally prescribed to the mother or daughter.
A more thorough search of the vehicle allowed detectives to locate a quantity of methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia.
The mother and daughter were taken into custody, booked into the Ascension Parish Jail and each charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a legend drug and possession of drug paraphernalia. Terry Grosse will also face charges for no insurance and operating a motor vehicle with a broken headlight.
