LABADIEVILLE - Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Scott Joseph Matherne, 41, of 310 Malibu Road, Houma, LA, on charges related to a complaint early Monday.

Deputies were dispatched to an area near Teal Street in Labadieville, LA, in connection with a suspicious vehicle backed up in a driveway.

Deputies arrived and made contact with the suspect identified as Scott Joseph Matherne.  Deputies noted numerous garden equipment in the bed of the vehicle as well as items inside the truck.

Matherne provided deputies with an explanation for his presence but those reason were proven by deputies to be non-plausible.

Deputies spoke to the owners of the home and confirmed that Matherne’s presence was not authorized.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for the vehicle and when executed, investigators seized stolen property from the home as well as marijuana and meth-amphetamine.

Matherne was arrested, transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center and booked on counts of:

            *Simple Burglary

            *Possession of Marijuana

            *Possession of Meth-Amphetamine

Matherne was incarcerated pending a bond hearing.
