TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS



BAYOU L’OURSE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Megan Marie Archilla, 34, of 111 Bowen Lane, Morgan City, LA, on Saturday morning on a variety of drug related charges.


On Saturday morning, Archilla flagged down a patrol deputy and requested assistance to attempt to retrieve a friend’s phone.


As a routine measure, the deputy asked Archilla to identify herself.  Archilla provided a fictitious name to the deputy.  The communications center determined that the name Archilla provided did not exist in the database.


The deputy advised Archilla and requested that she provide her correct name at which time she complied.  The communications center determined that a warrant for failure to appear in court on a drug related charge was active.


In the meantime, the deputy detected a strong odor of marijuana emitting from Archilla’s person.  The deputy interrogated Archilla about the odor.  The suspect then admitted that she had marijuana on her person.  She turned the marijuana over to the deputy.  The plastic bag also contained doses of Alprazolam and Oxycodone, and Archilla had no prescriptions for those drugs.


Archilla was arrested transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center and booked on charges of:


            *Possession of Oxycodone

            *Possession of Alprazolam (Xanax)

            *Possession of Marijuana

*Warrant for Failure to Appear in Assumption Parish Court for an unrelated charge of   Possession of Marijuana

Archilla remains incarcerated pending a bond hearing.


The bench warrant bond was set at $839.00 cash.
