PAINCOURTVILLE Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Savannah Claire Aucoin, 26, of 151 North Bay Road, Pierre Part, LA, on traffic and drug law violations following a traffic stop on LA 70 east of Paincourtville on Wednesday evening.

A uniformed patrol deputy observed a westbound vehicle commit a traffic violation.  The deputy conducted a traffic stop and identified the driver and lone occupant as Savannah Claire Aucoin.  The officer noted a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.

The driver was interviewed and initially refused consent to search her vehicle.  A K-9 unit was called to the scene.  Although the violator at some point provided comments of marijuana in the vehicle, the K-9 was utilized conducting an open-air sniff and alerted positive to areas of the vehicle.  The vehicle was searched, resulting in the seizure of marijuana, meth-amphetamine and paraphernalia consistent with the consumption of both drugs.

As a result, Savannah Claire Aucoin was advised of her rights, arrested and transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center where she was booked on counts of:

            *Possession of Marijuana (1st Offense)

            *Possession of Meth-Amphetamine

            *Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Aucoin was incarcerated pending a bond proceeding.
