Detective Myers stopped the vehicle and encountered the driver, identified as Chase Michael Marrero, age 28 and a resident of Henry Landry Lane in Metairie. Detective Myers observed a knife protruding from Marrero’s pocket and patted him down for officer safety. As the knife was removed from his pocket, Marrero advised that he had a pistol in the vehicle. Detective Myers received verbal consent to search the vehicle and discovered a 9 mm semi-automatic pistol, two extra magazines and a quantity of narcotic pills.
Marrero was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where he was booked on two counts of possession of illegal drugs, one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with a weapon present and one count of careless operation of a vehicle. Marrero was released from jail later the same day after posting a $5,000 bond.
“This is another great example of the importance of criminal patrol throughout our parish,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Good job, Detective Myers. Not only did you remove a careless driver from our community, but also you removed a weapon, ammunition and illegal drugs. I appreciate all you do for the citizens of Washington Parish.”
