NAPOLEONVILLE Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Kentrell Lang, 37, of 212 Telegraph Street, Napoleonville, LA, on charges related to a Friday evening traffic stop south of Napoleonville.

On Friday evening, a uniformed patrol division deputy executed a traffic stop for a motor vehicle violation south of Napoleonville.

The deputy first interviewed the driver and the deputy noticed an odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.  Following the driver interview, the deputy interviewed the passenger identified as Kentrell Lang.

Based on the passenger interview, the deputy performed a pat down for officer and civilian safety.  In doing so, the deputy seized a quantity of suspected marijuana.  However, the deputy concluded that Lang continued to act nervously and the deputy felt the investigation needed to go further.  At some point, Kentrell Lang was found to be in possession of both marijuana and codeine.

Lang was arrested, transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center.  Once there, deputies recovered additional evidence related to drug law violations.

            *Criminal Conspiracy to Introduce Contraband into a Penal Institution

            *Obstruction of Justice
