NARCOTICS SECTION

 

Jason Matthews, 36, 178 Friendship Alley, Amelia, LA was arrested on May 10, 2018 at 12:51 pm for the following offenses:

  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of Schedule II (methamphetamine)

  • Warrant for aggravated cruelty to animals
  • Warrant for failure to appear on the charge of criminal neglect of family
  • Warrant for failure to appear on the charge of possession of heroin
  • Warrant for failure to appear on the charge of resisting an officer

Narcotics detectives executing arrest warrants for Matthews at a residence on Canal Road observed Matthews run out of the back of the residence. Detectives apprehended Matthews. Inside the residence, detectives observed glass pipes used to smoke methamphetamine and found that the drug paraphernalia belonged to Matthews. A juvenile was present at the residence at the time of the investigation. Also, the residence is within 2,000 feet of a park, church, and school.

 

The warrant for aggravated cruelty to animals stems from an investigation that took place in January. A deputy patrolling Amelia observed a dog inside of a doghouse in the front yard of a residence on Friendship Alley. The deputy observed that the animal was unresponsive and found that the dog was dead. During the subsequent investigation, the deputy collected evidence that residents left the animal outdoors during extremely cold weather without proper shelter which resulted in the dog’s death. The deputy obtained warrants for the residents on animal cruelty charges including Jason Matthews. Other arrests have already been made in this case.

 

The warrant for domestic abuse battery and resisting an officer was issued after a deputy was called to a report of a disturbance at a residence in Amelia. The deputy found evidence that Matthews pushed a female victim during a confrontation between the two. During the investigation into the battery, Matthews fled from the area on foot.

 

Following Matthews arrest at the residence on Canal Road in Bayou Vista, he was transported to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center for booking. Bail is set at $24,764.45.
