K9 bites suspect during Houma drug bust
HOUMA - Three people arrested Thursday are accused of having nearly $10,000 in counterfeit money and a large quantity of illegal drugs.
The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office was dispatched to a hotel in Houma after receiving a tip about a stolen vehicle. The investigation led detectives in a hotel room where three suspects, Lacey Richard, Jasmine Hendrix, and Joshua Hyatt were located.
A search warrant for the hotel room was obtained, and officials seized a large quantity of crystal meth, marijuana, Suboxone, drug paraphernalia, and $9,250 in counterfeit money.
The sheriff's office says during the raid, Hyatt pushed his way past detectives and ran from the hotel. He was pursued by a K9 into a nearby marsh, where he was apprehended.
He received minor injuries from the bite.
All three suspects were taken into custody and charged accordingly.
