At approximately 2:30 p.m. Tuesday a traffic stop for a violation of the city's loud music ordinance, resulted in the seizure of (44) rocks of crack cocaine, in addition to marijuana and ecstasy, the police release said.

Arrested in connection with the incident was Quentin Frank, 19, of 431 Acadia St. Eunice. Frank was observed by police in the patrol division in the area of East and Madison streets. The initial officer said he could hear loud music coming from the vehicle that was driven by Frank, and proceeded to stop him for that violation.
