Two suspects were taken to an area hospital before being booked into the Vermilion Parish jail after they allegedly ate their heroin stash during a traffic stop in Abbeville.

Vermilion Parish Sheriff's spokesman Drew David told our news partner, KATC, narcotics agents suspected the individuals in a car traveling on La. Highway 167 were selling drugs. When attempting to stop the vehicle, the agents saw what they said looked like heroin being thrown from the vehicle. Once the vehicle stopped, two of the suspects inside were witnessed trying to eat the narcotics.

After attempting to devour the drugs, the suspects were taken to an area hospital because David said,"the drugs began to invade their system."

All three suspects, listed below, were booked into the Vermilion Parish Jail on the following charges:

Kervin Gallien, 22, of Lafayette; principal to possession with intent to distribute heroin, principal to possession of heroin and principal to possession of drug paraphernalia.

Kassi Adams, 21, of Lafayette;  principal to possession with intent to distribute heroin, principal to possession of heroin and principal to possession of drug paraphernalia.

Antonio Lewis, 33, of Lafayette; fourth-offense possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia and transactions involving drug proceeds.
