The Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Tactical Narcotics Team arrested Lionel George Somersall, JR (age-45) of Zwolle and Sharon Nichole Taylor (age-35) of Robeline Monday afternoon.
T.N.T. Agents stopped a silver Ford F150 on Cedar Grove Road near Rocky Springs Road for a traffic violation.
Somersall was driving and Taylor was the front seat passenger.
During the investigation, K-9 “Tessa” indicated a positive alert of a narcotic odor coming from the truck. Taylor tried to hinder the Agents’ investigation by locking the truck doors and refusing to give Agents the keys. Taylor also resisted Agents and Deputies when she was placed in the patrol unit during her arrest. T.N.T. Agents retrieved the keys and began to search the truck. Agents located a loaded .38 special revolver under the driver’s seat. A check of the firearm revealed it was stolen.
Both Somersall and Taylor have prior convictions for certain felony crimes on their criminal records. Later in the day, the Women’s Jailer contacted T.N.T. Agents stating Taylor made a phone call, telling the person she and Somersall had a large amount of narcotics with them and she threw it out of the vehicle before being stopped by the Agents.
T.N.T. Agents and Detectives went to Cedar Grove Road that night and located a bag in the ditch on Cedar Grove Road not far from where Somersall and Taylor were stopped. The bag contained 6 ounces of suspected methamphetamine, 17 grams of suspected marijuana, 3 – Federal .38 spl rounds matching the rounds found in the pistol earlier and some other items.
