Duson - Officers with the Duson Police observed a motorcycle parked at a local casino which matched the description of a motorcycle reported stolen from the Lake Charles, LA area on Wednesday June 9, 2021. This motorcycle had been obviously spray painted black to disguise its original paint colors. Officers checked the affixed license plate and confirmed that it was the motorcycle stolen from Lake Charles.
Surveillance was established and when 42 year old Michael Self exited the Casino and mounted the stolen motorcycle officers rushed in and took Self into custody. A search of Self’s pockets and the nap sack he possessed yielded the recovery of 21.9 grams of Crystal Methamphetamine with a street value of $4,380.00.
