A Texas woman is behind bars in Jeff Davis Parish on drug charges. Deputies say they stopped a 2008 Pontiac for speeding on Interstate 10 at mile marker 64 yesterday. Deputies say while they were speaking with the driver, they detected a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. Deputies then spoke to the passenger, 23 year old Kayla Jackson of Houston, TX. Deputies say while speaking with Jackson about the odor of marijuana from inside the vehicle, Jackson voluntarily gave up two plastic bags of marijuana and claimed ownership of the marijuana. Jackson was arrested and booked into the Jefferson Davis Parish jail for possession of marijuana.
