The Patterson Police Department, Morgan City Police Department, and St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office conducted a joint search effort for Jones who was wanted by Patterson Police for armed robbery and second degree aggravated battery charges. Investigators developed information that Jones was in a vehicle on Friendship Alley in Amelia. The suspect truck was located and Sheriff’s Office narcotics detectives initiated a traffic stop. Detectives located Jones in the backseat of the truck and detained him. Investigators smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the truck and located a large bag of the substance along with a smaller bag of marijuana that was packaged in a manner consistent with street level illegal drug sales. Over $1,500 in cash was located in Jones pants pocket.

While making initial contact with Jones, investigators observed a second vehicle pulling up to the truck. A detective observed the driver, Junifer, conceal a bag behind the seat. Another detective observed the passenger, Woods, reach into his pocket and retrieve a handgun. Detectives ordered Woods to put down the weapon. Woods complied. Both Junifer and Woods were detained. Detectives knew Woods was a convicted felon and is prohibited from possessing a gun. During the subsequent investigation, detectives located Xanax pills in Woods’ pants pocket. Investigators obtained a search warrant for the car and retrieved the bag Junifer attempted to hide. It contained cocaine, a piece of crack cocaine, and Xanax, tramadol, and clonazepam pills.

The illegal drugs and weapon were located within 2000 feet of a Church resulting in the additional CDS charge for all three suspects.

Jones, Woods, and Junifer were transported to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center for booking. No bail is set.
