Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Haughton man was arrested Sunday evening for possession of marijuana and stealing underwear from a store in Haughton.
Mario T. Nash, 31, of the 500 block of Camp Zion Rd. in Haughton, was seen acting suspiciously by walking repeatedly in and out of the Dollar General store on Bellevue Rd. A Bossier Sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to the store and stopped Nash in his vehicle while in the store’s parking lot.
Nash consented to a search of his vehicle, in which the deputy found several unopened packages of tank tops, boxers and socks. The deputy also found a suspected marijuana joint, as well as a pack of rolling papers. Nash admitted the drugs belonged to him. He also admitted taking the under garments from the store without paying for them.
Nash was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and theft of goods. He was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking; his bond is pending.
