The Vidalia Police Department (VPD) arrested four people on drug in mid-September.
According to a press release from VPD, at approximately 10:49 p.m. on Sept. 13, VPD narcotic officers made a traffic stop on a vehicle for improper display of a tag.
While speaking with the driver, Brett Stone, officers reported that they observed Stone acting unusually nervous as well as the two passengers; Johnathan Aucoin and Heather Huntsman.
Officers were given consent to search the vehicle and found several pieces of drug paraphernalia, a vial of Norcan, approximately 2.2 g. of suspected methamphetamine, and 12 unites of a legend drug. Since none of the occupants claimed ownership all three were arrested and transported to Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office to be held.
The three were taken before Judge Kathy Johnson who set bail for both Stone and Aucoin at $35,000, and Huntsman received a $25,000 bail.
Brett Stone, age 34, of Sorrento was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of schedule II/CDS, possession of a legend drug without a prescription, and improper display of a tag.
Johnathan Aucoin, age 38, and Heather Huntsman, age 46, both of Monroe, were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of schedule II/CDS, and possession of a legend drug without a prescription.
In a separate traffic stop on Sept. 20, while speaking with the driver, a VPD officer smelled the odor of burnt marijuana emitting from the inside of the vehicle. When the officer asked, the driver gave consent to search. Upon the search of the vehicle officers located approximately 3.8 g. of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Devin Carter, age 18, of Vidalia, was cited for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, speeding, and no drivers license.
