THIBODAUX, LA (WVUE) -

Troopers assigned to the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations, in a joint effort with the Department of Homeland Security, seized 15.6 kilograms of cocaine with an estimated street value of $468,000 in Thibodaux. 

The bust happened on September 18 after investigators made contact with an airplane flying out of Brownsville, TX that was landing at the Thibodaux Municipal Airport in Terrebonne Parish. 

Troopers and agents met the airplane as it landed at the airport and then  spoke to the pilot, 29-year-old John Crow of Brownsville, TX.

Investigators say Crow was extremely nervous during the encounter and granted consent to search the airplane. 

Troopers and agents found 15.6 kilograms of cocaine inside Crow's luggage, and $2090 in cash in Crow's possession.

He faces charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, and transactions involving drug proceeds.

Crow was arrested and booked at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex. State Police Detectives also seized the currency and airplane in Crow's possession.

So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...

    Three turnovers against the lowly Jets can still get you a win in this league. Numerous giveaways against the Eagles, Vikings, Rams, or Panthers might not give you the same result in the standings. The Saints end the season with the Falcons and the Bucs. If they want to end the 2017 regular season campaign on a win streak, things need to be cleaned up. "Two fumbles, and at times you're going to score. I just think that's happened too many times to us this year. We're knocking a...
