Cops accuse three of transporting various drugs during traffic stop

Police arrested and charged two women and a man Wednesday following a traffic stop that turned up powder cocaine, crack cocaine, Oxycodone, ecstasy and marijuana.
At approximately 9 p.m., officers stopped a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier with three occupants at the corner of West Thomas and South Jackson streets for driving with a revoked tag.
The driver, Keaira Davis, 19, let officers search the vehicle.
Authorities said Anjelica Rushing, 19, was sitting in the front passenger seat and Larry Lamar Cruse, 25, was sitting in the back passenger seat.
Police found two marijuana roaches in a cup in the car’s center console.
Police said two pocketbooks were sitting on the floorboard.
Under one of the pocketbooks, the officer found a plastic bag containing powder cocaine. Upon further searching the vehicle, the officer unzipped one of the pocketbooks and found pills and another bag of cocaine.
Police also found another bag containing crack cocaine.
While searching the pocketbook authorities said belonged to Davis, police found an unopened Bud Light Straw-Ber-Rita.
Upon asking Cruse if he had anything on him, police said Cruse told officers he had a small bag of marijuana “in his butt cheeks.”
In the end, officers found 23.7 grams of powder cocaine, 1.8 grams of crack cocaine, 42 Oxycodone pills, eight ecstasy pills and 3.4 grams of marijuana.
