Morgan City Police officers who were arresting a man accused of domestic violence ended up booking him on drug charges as well.
Police went to a Paton Street home to arrest Bradley E. Druilhet, 32, on warrants that accused him of domestic abuse battery and child endangerment and home invasion. The warrants accuse him of forcing his way into a home and beating a person there, in front of a young child.
When officers got to the Paton Street home and arrested Druilhet, they allegedly saw cocaine on the kitchen counter, so they got a search warrant for the home, a spokesman said.
Officers executed the search warrant and located suspected crack cocaine, cocaine package for sale, suspected heroin, a 9mm handgun, and drug paraphernalia in the home, police allege. A computer check revealed that Druilhet is also a convicted felon which prohibits him from possessing a firearm.
Druilhet was transported to the Morgan City Police Department and was booked on the warrants and with possession of heroin and cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm in the presence of drugs, criminal damage to property.
