The occupant of the vehicle was Kelvin Paul Dunn (44), a resident of Montecino Road in Bush, Louisiana. When detectives searched Dunn’s person and vehicle, they discovered a glass pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine, a quantity of unknown drugs, and over $12,000 in currency. All items were seized for evidence.
Dunn was arrested without incident on charges of possession with intent to distribute illegal drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bond was set at $50,000. The following day, he met the conditions of his bond and was released.
“The very act of bringing illegal narcotics to the fairgrounds for sale sickens me,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Kudos to the concerned citizen who alerted us to this man and to our narcotics detectives who quickly located and apprehended him. We have zero tolerance for anyone who brings illegal narcotics to the fair for any reason, whether for personal use or otherwise.”
