During the search, Sgt. Dupre discovered a bag of marijuana inside the center console and a small cigar containing marijuana which was located in a plastic ashtray. He also discovered part of a pill of Adderall, a controlled medication. The driver admitted the Adderall was hers and that she did not have a prescription.
Sgt. Dupre advised the woman she was under arrest and would be transported to the jail where her true identity would be revealed through fingerprints. Upon hearing this, the woman confessed that her actual name was Tharazun L. Armon, age 25, and that she was a resident of Dauphine Street in Bogalusa.
Once Armon arrived at the jail, she was booked on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of Schedule II drugs, speeding, driving under suspension and resisting arrest by providing false information. She remains in jail with her bond set at $5,000.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “This is yet another example of pro-active law enforcement. Sgt. Dupre’s patrol on Highway 21 yielded a good arrest and removed more illegal drugs from our community. Good job, Jay!”
