PLATTENVILLE Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Morris Thompson, III, 37, of 185 Daggs Street, Belle Rose, LA, on numerous charges following a domestic complaint at a Plattenville business.

On Friday evening, deputies were dispatched to the parking lot of a Plattenville business in reference to a disturbance.

Upon arrival, deputies made contact with Morris Thompson, III, who was a party to the complaint.  During the complaint investigation, deputies were advised by the Communications Division that three Failure to Appear Warrants were active on Thompson.

Based on the outstanding warrants, Thompson was arrested.  While conducting a pat down search of his person, incidental to the arrest, deputies located quantities of suspected heroin.  A white substance was also seized and is believed to be crack cocaine.  Thompson was transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center.  While being booked, Thompson appeared to have something in his mouth.  Deputies struggled with Thompson, eventually removing the item from his mouth.  The substance appears to be heroin.
