Man arrested when probation officer allegedly finds marijuana

When people in the Lafayette area have been convicted of a felony and are out on parole or are on probation, they need to be extremely careful with their behavior. Parole or probation officers frequently check up on people in this position, looking for behavior that could signal a return to potential illegal activity. Sometimes, the alleged illegal acts take place right in front of them.

That's the situation that agents came across when they visited a man, in the form of a routine house check. The agents say that the man, who has been arrested several times in the last several years on weapons and drug charges, had marijuana in plain view inside his residence.

As a result, the agents from the Louisiana Department of Probation and Parole detained the man and called police. At that point, a search of the man's residence took place. Police and narcotics division agents say that they found several bags of marijuana, a large amount of cash and a loaded handgun -- an item that the convicted felon was not permitted to possess.

The man was then charged with multiple charges involving the drugs and the gun, as well as for illegally using controlled substances in the presence of minors. Officials said three children were present in the home at the time.

Obviously, people in this situation are likely to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Drug and weapons charges are taken very seriously by the state of Louisiana, particularly when someone with a criminal record is involved.
