TERREBONNE PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A suspected drug dealer who was carrying more than $100,000 worth of drugs was able to flee police, but left his bag of dope behind.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said agents with the Terrebonne Parish Narcotics Task Force were patrolling Al’s Trailer Park in Gray after receiving complaints of drug dealing.

When agents arrived on scene, they observed a male carrying a black Air Jordan backpack. When they tried to approach the man, they said he dropped the bag near the front of a mobile home and ran away. Agents recovered the back pack and located a stash of illegal narcotics. The drugs include 567 grams of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of more than $113,000 as well as nearly 170 grams of marijuana with a state value of more than $1,000. Agents also recovered 90 hydrocodone pills and 60 oxycodone pills, as well as plastic bags with suspected meth residue.  

Anyone with information concerning this investigation or any other illegal narcotics activity is asked to call the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985) 876-2500, or Bayou Region Crime Stoppers at (800) 743-7433. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible for a cash reward.
