Traffic stop leads to narcotics arrest and money seizure

 Kenner - On Friday, December 05, 2014, at approximately 1:58 p.m., Kenner Police Narcotics Detective David Schlueter conducted a traffic stop on 2011 Nissan Maxima, for a tint violation in the 2800 block of Tifton Street, in Kenner. 

 During the stop, detectives observed a brown paper bag which contained two bottles of Mannitol in the rear seat.  The driver of the vehicle, told detectives that the Mannitol belonged to the passenger, Cody Bell, who had just purchased it.  Mannitol is sometimes used as an adulterant or cutting agent for heroin, methamphetamines, cocaine, or other illicit drugs.  A criminal history check on Bell revealed he had an outstanding warrant / attachment from New Orleans, for a miscellaneous violation.  Upon removing Bell from the vehicle to arrest, Bell was found to be in possession of 6.2 grams of heroin, 11.2 grams of crack cocaine, 2.2 grams of marijuana, and $1,211.00 in cash. 

 Cody Bell, 32, who provided the home address of 204 Randolph Street, in Lafayette, Louisiana was found to have two prior convictions, for which he pled guilty to possession of cocaine, and one count of possession of marijuana. 

 Bell was charged with the crimes of possession with the intent to distribute heroin, possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession of marijuana 2nd offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, in addition to the outstanding NOPD attachment.  The money was also seized.    The driver of the vehicle was also cited for the tint violation.
