On Friday, April 10, 2015, at 6:27 pm, while executing a search warrant on Evangeline Court in LaPlace, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff‘s Office deputies saw Allonzo Bolden, 29, outside a neighboring apartment smoking what appeared to be a blunt, a cigar stuffed with marijuana, and smelled the odor of burning marijuana when they exited their patrol unit. When deputies approached Bolden, it was evident that the odor was coming from him and his clothing.
Bolden admitted to deputies that he smoked marijuana and threw the blunt to the ground as deputies approached. Deputies recovered from Bolden‘s possession a small amount of marijuana and $1971.00 cash. Through the open door of Bolden‘s apartment, deputies saw two cigars, commonly used to roll marijuana blunts, and a white rock like substance believed to be crack cocaine. Based on this observation, deputies obtained a search warrant for the apartment.
Upon execution of the search warrant, deputies recovered three handguns, $100 worth of crack cocaine, $30 worth of powder cocaine, and $15 worth of marijuana. A computer check on the handguns revealed that one of the handguns was reported stolen.
Deputies arrested Allonzo Bolden and booked him with possession of marijuana, drug free zone violation, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon (3), illegal carrying a weapon with a CDS, and illegal possession of a stolen firearm. He remains in custody in lieu of a $161,000 bond. Bolden was arrested eighteen times in St. John the Baptist Parish since January 2003.
