St. Mary Parish sherriff's deputies arrest 21-year-old on suspicion of drug activity

St. Mary Parish sheriff's deputies have been on high alert after a recent spate of home burglaries and apparent "narcotic activity" in the area.

On Tuesday, they arrested a 21-year-old Berwick man, whom they believe was dealing drugs and had possession of stolen property.

The man was arrested around 1:15 p.m. after deputies searched a Berwick home and claim to have found stolen property that included an X-Box 360 game console and a flat-screen TV.

The deputies also say they found marijuana in the home.

The man is likely to be charged with an offense related to possession of marijuana. Since there was also a small child in the home at the time the of the deputies' search, he may also be charged with having drugs in the presence of a juvenile.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office is now trying to find the rightful owners of the property it thinks was stolen.

Now, we have never met this man, so we cannot speak about him individually. But we do know that not every 21-year-old has a complete grasp of the gravity of every situation. At that age, some people still think certain things (like marijuana) are "no big deal" even if that is not the case at all. To be certain, capable adults are responsible for their own actions, but we all come to this realization at different times.

Our office often works with people who have been accused of illegal drug activity. To learn more about our focus and approach, the Drug Charges portion of our website has relevant information that may be of interest to you.
