Shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday morning (December 17, 2017), a St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputy initiated a traffic stop on a red Infinity G35 after observing the vehicle run a stop sign in Slidell. Before the deputy could exit his patrol car, the driver of the Infinity, Trequan Rollins (24) of Slidell, exited his vehicle, fled on foot, and then discarded a loaded semi-automatic handgun from the waistband of his pants.
K-9 Thor and his handler were called to help in the pursuit. They quickly located Rollins hiding in a nearby backyard and he was taken into custody and charged with numerous drug, traffic and other violations.
Deputies discovered 7.6 ounces of marijuana, 2.8 ounces of cocaine (packaged for individual sale), a scale, plastic bags and $460 in cash inside Rollins’ vehicle.
