Detectives with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office Narcotics Division patrolling the Patterson area observed a car cross over the center line of Highway 90 nearly striking another vehicle. Detectives initiated a traffic stop. The driver of the car failed to stop and fled from detectives. Detectives observed the car travelling at a high rate of speed and running other vehicles off of the roadway. Detectives pursued the car onto Kelly Pellerin Lane in Verdunville where the driver of the car passed close to pedestrians standing in the roadway. As the driver of the car stopped the vehicle on Kelly Pellerin Lane, a passenger, later identified as Gunner, exited the car. Upon seeing detectives nearby, Gunner threw several bags of synthetic marijuana into the back seat of the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. At that point, detectives detained Gunner, the driver, identified as Kelly, and another occupant in the vehicle pending further investigation. Detectives received consent to search the car and located bags of synthetic marijuana with an estimated street value of approximately $2,000 dollars. Detectives also located a small bag of marijuana, a digital scale, and small plastic bags inside the car. Ginner and Kelly were transported to the parish jail for booking. No bail is set.
