THIBODAUX, LA. – – Thibodaux Police arrested two people for possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia after a welfare checkup turned into a five hour stand-off.
A concerned person called police early Wednesday morning, saying Melissa Rodrigue was possibly being held against her will by her ex-boyfriend Jordan Landry. When officers arrived at Rodrigue’s home in the 600 block of Magnolia Street, no one answered, according to police.
After several more attempts to get someone to answer the door, the Lafourche Parish Inter-Agency Crisis Management Unit was activated out of concern for Rodrigue.
Landry and Rodrigue were taken into police custody after more than five hours, and Rodrique said she was not held against her will.
Police followed up with a search warrant and recovered suspected methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
Both were taken to Lafourche Parish Detention Center where they await their bond.
