  • Obstruction of justice
  • Possession of Schedule II (crack cocaine)
  • Resisting an officer
  • Warrant for failure to appear on the charges of direct contempt, failure to stop at a stop sign, and failure to honor written promise to appear

Mary Griffin, 48, 1363 Joseph Street, Siracusaville, LA was arrested on May 4, 2017 at 4:36 pm for possession of drug paraphernalia, a warrant for failure to appear on the charge of possession of drug paraphernalia, and a warrant for failure to appear on the charges of disturbing the peace (intoxicated).

Narcotics Section detectives executed a search warrant at a residence on Joseph Street in Siracusaville. Detectives saw Gibson in a truck outside the residence and observed him concealing a piece of crack cocaine (commonly referred to as a rock) in the seat of the vehicle. When detectives entered the residence, they observed Cannon run into a bathroom and throw a pill bottle into a garbage can. The bottle was recovered. Detectives found rocks of crack cocaine inside. Detectives also found cocaine residue on kitchen cooking utensils and $827 in cash belonging to Cannon. Through investigation, detectives collected evidence that Cannon sold crack cocaine to Gibson. The cash is suspected to have been obtained through the sale of illegal drugs. Griffin, who was in the residence at the time, had several items of drug paraphernalia in her purse. All three suspects were transported to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center for booking. No bail is set.
