Matthew Adams Synthetic

Eighty packs of synthetic marijuana are now off the street as a result of a traffic stop last week.

Narcotics agents with the Crowley Police Department stopped a vehicle being driven by Matthew Adams, 19 of Rayne on East Elm Street in Crowley. “During the investigation, officers obtained permission to search the vehicle driven by Adams. During the search, eighty (80) packs of Synthetic Marijuana and one (1) gram of Cocaine were located within the vehicle” stated Chief KP Gibson.

Adams was arrested and booked into the Acadia Parish Jail. Adams was booked on one (1) count of possession of cocaine and monies derived from drug proceeds. The charge regarding the synthetic marijuana is pending as agencies are required chemical testing to confirm banned substances. “We have sent the packages of synthetic marijuana to the Acadiana Crime Lab for a chemical analysis. Once ACL completes the testing, warrants will be issued for PWITD synthetic marijuana on Adams” stated Chief Gibson.
