A parole compliance check Tuesday led to four people being charged after agents found narcotics, drug paraphernalia and guns, the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office said Thursday.
Tilden Billiot Jr., 48, of Galliano, is charged with possession of a legend drug without a prescription, as well as possession of Klonopin and drug paraphernalia. He remained in the parish jail Thursday on a $16,000 bond.
Jason Bourg, 48, of Cut Off, is charged with contempt of court. He remained jailed Thursday on a $25,000 bond.
Tyronne Cheramie, 45, of Galliano, is charged with possession of a stolen firearm; possession of a firearm by a felon; carrying a weapon in the presence of controlled dangerous substances; possession with intent to distribute heroin; possession of a legend drug without a prescription; and possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He remained jailed Thursday on a $191,500 bond and was also being held for Probation and Parole.
Wanda Plaisance, 48, of Cut Off, was issued a summons on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Probation and Parole agents were checking on Cheramie when they found drugs in his home and contacted the Sheriff's Office, Sheriff Craig Webre said in a news release. Heroin and drug paraphernalia were in plain view, the sheriff said, so narcotics agents obtained a search warrant.
Webre said the narcotics agents found small amounts of methamphetamine and marijuana, along with two handguns, one of which was stolen in Jefferson Parish. Billiot and Cheramie also allegedly had medication they weren't prescribed.
The sheriff said Plaisance also had a needle containing an unknown substance, which was sent to the State Police Crime Lab for testing. She may face other charges.
