Eunice Police Officer Arrested
Eunice police arrested one of their own today. Chief Donald Dies says supervisors went to officer George Bergeaux's home on department business. While there, the officers smelled the scent of burnt marijuana. They informed narcotics detectives who later conducted a search of Bergeaux's home. That search turned up Naproxen, a suspected illegal potpourri, and drug paraphernalia. Included in that paraphernalia? A "Monster" energy drink can fashioned into a smoking device. Bergeaux later admitted to smoking the marijuana and the illegal potpourri. Chief Dies says that although it saddens him, none of his officers should be held above the law. Additional arrests may be made as the investigation continues.
