Broussard men accused of LSD, marijuana offenses

Two men were arrested on suspicion of drug offenses Sunday after Broussard police broke up a party at the residence they were renting. They are likely to face drug charges once prosuectors take up the claims against them.

The two men, who are 27 and 25 years old, were at a party in the 400 block of Heart D Farm Road when police arrived in response to a noise complaint.

After officers broke the party up, they searched the residence and allegedly found just under 140 grams of marijuana that had been apportioned into 97 individual bags. Officers have said they believe the stash has a street value of $1,400. They also claimed to have found around 30 items of drug paraphernalia, including pipes, bongs and rolling papers, as well as LSD.

The two men have now been charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute LSD and possession of drug paraphernalia. They were booked into Lafayette Parish Correctional Facility without incident.

Two things about this story are worth noting.

First, this was a rented residence, so it remains to be seen why police think that these items actually belong to the men they arrested, rather than to the owner of the residence.

Second, the party police broke up is estimated to have had over 50 guests. At this moment, we do not see any reason to rule out the possibility that these items may have belonged to one of those guests who then left them behind in their hurry to flee.

These are among the issues that the men’s defense will probably want to explore. The answers to these questions could affect the outcome case.
