Cancelled license plate winds up in meth bust

Posted: Updated:

EROS, La., (KNOE 8 News) - An Eros man was arrested early Monday morning by Union Parish sheriff's deputies after the license plate on his pickup truck was found to be canceled.

By the time deputies got through with their investigation, James Roy Henning Jr., 45, of 2354 Oakaloosa Rd., was booked into the parish detention center for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving under suspension and no liability insurance. His bond was set at $6,500.

When a deputy patrolling Farmerville came up behind the pickup, he said the driver and two passengers kept looking back at him by turning around and then watching through rearview mirrors.

The deputy thought the license plate on the truck expired in 2010, but it turned out to be 2016. A check on the plate however, revealed that it had been canceled.

When Henning was arrested and an inventory of the truck taken, a syringe was found in the center console containing .15cc of liquid. A field test on the liquid showed it to be meth.
