Suspicious behavior by a driver led a Bowie County Deputy to make a traffic stop that resulted in finding 97 grams of meth, other drugs, a rifle and the arrest of the driver.
Bowie County Sheriffs Department Press Release:
On March 23, 2016 at 3:06 am, Deputy Michelle Carrier was north bound on Buchanan Road in the center turn lane waiting to turn onto Loop 151. A maroon Lexus approaching her travelling south on Buchanan Road stopped when it was unnecessary for it to do so before turning onto Loop 151. The vehicle remained stopped for about one minute before turning. This was very suspicious to Deputy Carrier who turned to follow the car. She ran the license plate number on the Lexus and found it had been reported stolen to the Texarkana Texas Police Department. Deputy Carrier stopped the stolen vehicle in the 4100 block of South Lake Drive. She and Texarkana Texas Police Officer Colton Jackson took the driver in to custody. The driver was identified as Davian Ramond Stiger. A search of the stolen vehicle produced a rifle, 18 pills, a bag of marijuana and 97 grams of methamphetamine. Stiger was transported to the Bi-State Jail where he was booked in for Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, Possession of a Controlled Substance Over Four Grams and Under Two Hundred Grams, Possession of Dangerous Drugs and Possession of Marijuana Under Two Ounces. Judge Nancy Talley later set Stiger’s bonds at $10,000.00 for Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle, $75,000.00 for Possession of a Controlled Substance Over Four Grams and Under Two Hundred Grams, $15,000.00 for Possession of Dangerous Drugs and $3,000.00 for Possession of Marijuana Under Two Ounces.
