A St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputy was called out to investigate after a call came in about a car parked in the roadway on Chitimacha Trail.

The deputy found the driver, 20-year-old Louis Bryant Tabb, asleep inside the car.  He also saw a bag containing marijuana inside the car.

The officer also noticed other items inside of Tabb's car that he thought might be related to another investigation.

Around 7:30 this morning, the sheriff's office got a report of a vehicle burglary on Highway 319 in Cypremort Point.  The responding deputy recognized the items that had been stolen as being in Tabb's car.

Tabb has also been linked to another burglary in Cypremort Point.

He was arrested on charges of:

  • Obstruction of a highway
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Two counts of simple burglary
