Suspicious Behavior Leads Police in Recovering Illegal Narcotics

 On September 29, 2005 Officers of the Thibodaux Police Department, while conducting a special operation known as the Patrol Enhancement Team, observed a pickup truck driving erratic and recklessly on St. Charles St. Officers were able to stop the vehicle on Canal Blvd. near Pecan St. Officers interviewed the driver, Derrick James of 151 Johnson Ridge, Thibodaux, La. James was initially arrested for Reckless Operation of a Motor Vehicle and No Drivers License ( never applied ). During the roadside interview, Officers grew suspicious of James and elected to utilize the departmentís Narcotic Detection Dog.

The remaining occupants were advised to exit the vehicle while the search was being conducted. During an interview with one of the passengers Officers observed and were able to seize 14.3 grams of Cocaine, 4 grams of Crack Cocaine and $370.00 cash.

Other incidents of the four-hour operation resulted in the seizure of 1.5 grams of Cocaine, 2.4 grams of Crack Cocaine and 2 grams of Marijuana. Approximate street value of all illegal narcotics combined is $2,230.00.
