TRAFFIC STOP LEADS TO ARREST OF JUVENILE FOR DRUG DISTRIBUTION

On Monday, October 31, 2016, a WPSO Criminal Patrol Deputy, observed a red Chevrolet driving erratically on Highway 10 east of Highway 439.  The vehicle was stopped and as the deputy approached the back of the vehicle he detected a strong odor consistent with the smell of marijuana. 

 

The deputy instructed the driver of the vehicle to exit and performed a pat frisk for officer safety.  The deputy then approached the passenger side of the vehicle and again he detected a strong odor consistent with the smell of marijuana.  The passenger was instructed to exit the vehicle and a pat frisk was conducted which revealed a small clear plastic bag containing a green leafy substance suspected to be marijuana.   At that time the 3 other occupants were removed from the vehicle and a pat frisk was conducted for officer safety. 

 

The driver gave permission to search the vehicle.  During the search a large plastic bag was confiscated which contained approximately 24 individual wrapped bags, each containing a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana.  Deputies also confiscated a grinder which we believe was used to grind up the suspected marijuana. 

 

The passenger of the vehicle confessed to owning the marijuana and associated paraphernalia.  The individual was arrested for 1 count of possession with intent to distribute schedule I, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.  An order of detention was obtained a 22nd Judicial District Court Judge and the juvenile was placed in the custody of the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center. 

 

I want to commend Criminal Patrol Deputy Stephen K. Glenn for being alert and apprehending this young dealer.  His efforts removed a significant amount of drugs off the street.  I am hopeful that this young person will face the consequences of his decision and turn away from a life of crime.   This young person has time to make amends and live life within the law.”  Said Sheriff Seal.
