A New Orleans man was arrested early Wednesday morning for transporting heroin into Slidell, while also illegally carrying a firearm. Early Wednesday (June 28, 2017) morning, Slidell Police officers stopped a vehicle on Old Spanish Trail for not having a license plate. Officers discovered that Alonzo Clavo (22) of New Orleans was transporting heroin, with the intent to distribute it to someone in the Slidell area. Clavo was also illegally carrying a Glock 9mm pistol. "When you mix firearms with illegal drugs, it is a recipe for violent crime," says Chief Randy Fandal.
Clavo was arrested and booked with possession with the intent to distribute heroin, illegal carrying of a weapon, no license plate, driving under suspension, and no proof of insurance.
