Prairieville Man Gets 15 years for Illegal Narcotics Possession

          On February 15, 2018, Dwight Perrilloux of 37214 St. Marie Ave. Prairieville, LA., age 22, pled guilty to Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance. Perrilloux was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Charles “Chuck” Long, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Tess Stromberg. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a 2017 disturbance at an area Wal-Mart.  

           On April 28, 2017, officers with the Gonzales Police Department responded to the area Wal-Mart in reference to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, officers met with a female subject who was identified as Perrilloux’s significant other. The female advised that she was approached by Perrilloux while working and Perrilloux began to cause a disturbance. Perrilloux fled the area prior to the arrival of officers. A short while later, officers located Perrilloux on Weber City Rd. riding a bicycle. Upon making contact with Perrilloux, officers conducted a pat-down search of Perrilloux’s outer clothing. During the pat-down, officers located a clear plastic baggie containing Crystal Meth in Perrilloux’s pant pocket, a pill bottle containing tin foil packs of heroin individually packaged for sale, two syringes, and over $1,200 in U.S. Currency. Perrilloux was subsequently arrested and transported to the Ascension Parish Jail where he was booked accordingly.  

          Upon entering a guilty plea to the above-mentioned charges, as per the plea agreement with prosecutors, Judge Stromberg ordered that Perrilloux be committed to the Louisiana Department of Corrections for a period of 15 years with credit for time served.
