LABADIEVILLE - A routine traffic stop over the weekend yielded the arrest of a woman and the seizure of more than $3,000 worth of methamphetamine, according to Sheriff's deputies in Assumption Parish.

Deputies said they pulled Tammy Lucas, 38, of Napoleonville over for speeding on Saturday morning, but the woman found herself in much greater legal trouble after investigators found marijuana and about 24 grams of meth hidden inside a small portable radio in her car.

Lucas was taken to Assumption Parish Detention Center on June 21st and booked on charges of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, a third offense for possession of marijuana and traffic violations.
