The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a wanted man after he crossed the fog line of Highway 90 in Bayou Vista.

The detective called for additional deputies.

When pulled over, 33-year-old Darnell Ayro Senior of Jeanerette gave the deputy a false name.

When a passenger in the SUV got out of the vehicle, the detective saw the driver's identification.

Ayro was wanted for failure to pay annual registration fee as a sex offender and failure to provide community notice as a sex offender. He was required to do this after his 2001 conviction in Iberia Parish for contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile for performing sexual immoral acts under law.

While trying to detain Ayro, the suspect took off on foot. Deputies found him hiding in a nearby dumpster.

Ayro was booked on the outstanding warrant and the following charges:

  • Improper lane usage
  • No driver's license
  • Resisting an officer (with force or violence)
  • Resisting an officer (by giving false information)
