BAYOU VISTA, LA (WAFB) - Narcotics agents said a traffic stop led them to a home they believe drugs were being sold from, resulting in three arrests.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office reported the arrests of Scott Dehart, 33, of Bayou Vista; Stacey Grubb, 33, also of Bayou Vista; and Brady Broussard, 38, of Morgan City. Deputies said Dehart and Grubb lived at the home where drugs and other items were found. They added a 4-year-old boy found in the home was released into the care of a family member.
Traci Landry with SMPSO said narcotics detectives patrolling the Morgan City area pulled over a car on US 90 for a traffic violation. Investigators identified the driver as Broussard and added his license was suspended. Detectives said meth, Klonopin, Taradal and Trilafon pills were found inside the vehicle. They reported also finding drug paraphernalia (spoons, syringes and a tourniquet).
