NAPOLEONVILLE - Sheriff's deputies retrieved a Napoleonville man from Indiana this week after he failed to show up for his drug trial in Assumption Parish earlier this year.

Sheriff Mike Waguespack said Kentrell T. Sanders, 30, was arrested in Elkhart, Ind. back in June after a traffic stop. The parish warden and assistant warden transported him to the parish jail Monday after they learned he was available for extradition.

According to Waguespack, Sanders was one of 64 people arrested or charged in January as part of a parish-wide crackdown. When he failed to show up for his trial over charges he distributed crack cocaine, a warrant was put out for his arrest.

Sanders is being held without bond until his next trial date.
