According to Sheriff Bobby J. Guidroz, “On February 18, 2021, a St. Landry Parish deputy was patrolling the Lawtell area when a dark colored SUV was seen travelling on Highway 190 and the license plate light was not functioning. The deputy initiated a traffic stop due to the violation. Upon approach of the vehicle, the deputy smelled the odor of an illegal substance emitting from the interior.”
