PLATTENVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Joshua Anthony Worley, 29, of 101 Williams Street, Napoleonville, LA, on numerous charges related to a traffic stop Saturday evening.

A uniformed patrol deputy stopped a vehicle being operated by Worley for a traffic violation near Spur 70 in Plattenville, LA.  Deputies interviewed Worley at which time he consented to a search of his vehicle.  The interview, combined with Worley’s consent and an open-air K-9 sniff of the vehicle, yielded quantities of cocaine and marijuana.  At one point Worley fled on foot but was quickly apprehended by deputies.
