HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - Houma Police say a traffic stop led to the discovery of a stolen pistol and a bag of marijuana.
Officers say just before midnight on Tuesday they detected a strong smell of pot coming from a vehicle near Main Street and Lafayette Street.
Police say when they stopped the vehicle, the passenger, 23-year-old Louis Antoine, was carrying a plastic bag containing 1.95 grams of marijuana, as well as a loaded pistol. Investigators say the pistol was reported stolen in a vehicle burglary back in August of 2014.
