I’m no expert on the do’s and don’t’s of dealing drugs, but calling a narcotics detective to arrange a dropoff seems like a misstep.
But in St. Mary Parish, that’s exactly what happened with Jeremy Green and Leandrea Fuselier earlier this week:
A detective of the St. Mary Parish Narcotics Section received a phone call from Fuselier stating that she wanted to arrange a “drop off” of contraband items at the jail. The detective quickly determined that Fuselier had dialed the wrong number and initiated an investigation. The narcotics detective found evidence that Fuselier and Green were conspiring with Lewis, an inmate at the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center, to have contraband delivered to the jail.
Fuselier accidentally dialed the wrong number and contacted a narcotics detective to arrange the delivery of contraband. Fuselier arranged the meeting at a gas station in the Jeanerette area. Narcotics detectives then made contact with Fuselier and Green at the location. Fuselier and Green were detained. There was also a child in the vehicle at the time of the investigation.
Detectives received consent to search the vehicle and located a brown paper bag containing synthetic cannabinoids, marijuana, Valium pills, Adderall pills, tobacco, and a cell phone. Fuselier and Green were transported to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center for booking. Lewis remains incarcerated. No bail is set.
There are obviously some questions here, like who exactly these two were trying to get in touch with at the jail. We have the answer to that one…
A further investigation revealed that Fuselier and Green were conspiring with 36 year old Kurwin Lewis of New Iberia, an inmate at the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center.
And now, for the mugshots. Nobody fares particularly well in a mug shot, but these three might fit the circumstances better than any we’ve ever seen…
Yes, they all look pissed off. It’s not surprising – when you get caught trying to smuggle narcotics into the jail because you end up calling the wrong cops by mistake, you’re probably going to end up pretty upset about how your life is turning out.
