Continuing its efforts to rid the streets of illegal narcotics is the Turkey Creek Police Department, who responded to another call of such activity in the wee-morning hours of Monday, June 8.

Officer Lemaire observed a vehicle fail to maintain proper lane usage which drove onto the shoulder of the roadway on US Hwy 167 N. During a field interview, Officer Lemaire observed Greta Louise Vondenstein Perkins, to be extremely nervous. Perkins gave verbal consent to search her vehicle where Lemaire located seven clear baggies containing a crystal rock-like substance, presumed to be methamphetamine, a glass smoking pipe containing an unknown residue, two ziplock bags with packaging baggies and a .22 caliber rifle with a loaded magazine.
Greta Louise Vondenstein Perkins was issued a traffic citation for improper lane usage, arrested and booked into the Evangeline Parish Jail for possession with intent to distribute Schedule II CDS, possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS and possession of drug paraphernalia.
