St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office Seizes Drugs and Money

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office Highway Enforcement Unit located a large amount of drugs
and cash during a traffic stop on Interstate 12 near Slidell on Wednesday (June 24, 2020).

Shortly before 3 a.m. on Wednesday, STPSO Highway Enforcement Unit deputies stopped a vehicle traveling eastbound on I-12 in Slidell. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Calvin D. Vaughn (44) and the front seat passenger was identified as Anthony J. Perkins (53).

During the course of the traffic stop, Highway Enforcement Unit K-9 Echo conducted a free-air narcotics odor sniff of the vehicle and provided a positive narcotics alert.  Both Vaughn and Perkins attempted to flee the scene and became physically combative with deputies before ultimately being detained.
