The story of the church-going woman heading home from a gospel concert didn't quite go with the rap CDs in the car.

The woman -- who also was driving a decommissioned police car -- turned out to be a drug runner hauling more than 100 pounds of marijuana, Louisiana State Police said.

A state trooper stopped the car on Interstate 20 in Bossier Parish Monday morning because it looked to have a fake license plate. The black Ford Crown Victoria, which had a "police interceptor" label on the back, was a old police car that had been sold by a department at auction.

The woman said she had been to a weekend gospel concert in East Texas -- but a state trooper became suspicious when he saw rap CDs on the dash. He brought in a drug-sniffing dog and found 106 pounds of marijuana in the trunk.

"There were no radios; everything was just stripped out," Trooper George Beck said of the car. "I do think the car was bought strickly to fool the police -- (that we would) say, 'Hey, that's another cop going by; let's see if we can duck under the radar.'"

Lomica Holbrook, 26, of Greenville, S.C., was arrested on charges of conspiracy to distribute drugs and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. She is held in the Bossier Parish Jail under $125,000 bond.

Troopers said Holbrook's brother bought the car. They said he has several arrests for drug violations.

theyre ALL good ideas "in theory" but Interstate 20 is a known drug corridor and the State Troopers know what to look for, Nine times out of ten they are pulled over for improper lane change (not using your signal when you change lanes) or following too closely. Those are just token violations to give the cop probable cause-Im sure they have a whole list of profile/protocol stuff they follow.
