PIERRE PART, LA (WAFB) -

Authorities said a tip helped them catch a suspected meth delivery guy Friday.

Tommy Donati II, 30, of Berwick was arrested in the Belle River area.

He was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and resisting an officer.

Bond has not been set.

The Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office said a confidential informant contacted a narcotics agent with information about a man bringing a large amount of crystal meth to the area.

The vehicle was described as an older model Chevrolet extended cab truck.

Investigators set up surveillance in the area and saw a truck fitting that description pull into the parking lot of a car wash.

Deputies said he started cussing when they approached, refused to give them his identification and ran when they tried to pat him down for safety.

They reported he was quickly caught. Agents said Donati had five clear bags with "chunks" of suspected crystal meth. They later confirmed it was six grams worth of the drug.

Deputies said during his arrest, Donati told them he would "take his lick" because he was "only bringing the crystal meth to sell to a friend."
