BAYOU L'OURSE - Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrests of Steve M. Scully, 51, of 117 Martin Street, Patterson, LA, and Tina Dore Stelly, 48, of 110 LaJaunie Court, Bayou L'Ourse, LA, on charges related to a Tuesday night traffic stop near Bayou L'Ourse.

A uniformed patrol deputy observed a vehicle commit a turning violation and proceeded to stop the vehicle.

The driver was identified as Steve M. Scully.  The passenger was identified as Tina Dore Stelly.

Deputies proceeded to interview both suspects.  The suspects were both evasive in their answers in response to questions.  Based on their actions, deputies thought it was appropriate to have a K-9 unit conduct an open-air search of the vehicle.

The K-9 alerted to positions inside the vehicle.  A follow-up search resulted in the seizure of crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia.

Both suspects were placed under arrest, transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center and booked as follows:

Steven M. Scully-

            *Possession of Crack Cocaine

            *Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

            *Driving Under Suspension

            *Resisting an Officer

Tina Dore Stelly was booked on counts of:

            *Possession of Crack Cocaine

            *Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

Both Scully and Stelly were incarcerated pending a bond hearing.
