A Rayne resident is in the Acadia Parish Jail after a drug bust in Crowley that began with a police chase.
Crowley police say 21-year-old Drake Menard fled during an attempted traffic stop. Menard allegedly led authorities into the Ebenezer area of town and onto Monceaux Road near Rayne.
There, police say, Menard ditched the car and ran into a field. Menard was arrested in the field without incident.
Officers say they found 69 bags of synthetic marijuana in the car.
Menard is booked on numerous charges, including possession with intent to distribute and aggravated flight from an officer.
