TRAFFIC STOP – DRUG LAW VIOLATIONS
AUSTIN WADE BERCEGEAY

PIERRE PART – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Austin Wade Bercegeay, 23, of 35663 Ridgeland Drive, Denham Springs, LA, on felony drug law violations arising from a Monday evening traffic stop on LA 70 in Pierre Part.

A uniformed patrol deputy / K-9 unit observed a vehicle commit a traffic violation westbound on LA 70. The deputy initiated a stop of that vehicle and made contact with the driver now identified as Austin Wade Bercegeay. The deputy noted a pungent odor of suspected marijuana emitting from the vehicle. It was determined that the driver was operating his vehicle with a suspended driver’s license.

After the officer / violator interview, the deputy concluded that additional investigation was warranted.

The deputy positioned his K-9 and conducted an open-air sniff of the suspect vehicle. The K-9 alerted positive for the presence of controlled dangerous substances. A subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of a significant quantity of suspected marijuana.

Austin Wade Bercegeay was arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on charges of:

*Speeding – 86 mph / 55 mph
*Driving Under a Suspended Driver’s License
*Possession of marijuana with Intent to Distribute

Austin Wade Bercegeay was incarcerated and released on a $5,000 bond.
