NAPOLEONVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) – A deputy with the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop over the weekend.

The deputy allegedly saw Dennis Pena Molizone, 40, of Prairieville, commit a traffic violation.

Molizone was asked some questions and “during the interview, the deputy noted several factors consistent with illegal drug activity,” according to the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Following the interview, the deputy asked for a K-9 to come and inspect the vehicle driven by Dennis Pena Molizone.

APSO said the K-9 “conducted an open-air sniff of the suspect vehicle and alerted positive to the presence of illegal narcotics.”

This led to a search of the vehicle and discovery of amphetamine tablets as well as marijuana by the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The Prairieville man was arrested and charged with the crimes listed below:

  • Possession of a Legend Drug without a Prescription
  • Possession of Marijuana
  • Speeding, 68 MPH/55 MPH

Molizone was booked into and then bonded out of the Assumption Parish Detention Center.
