A Hermann man and a Pacific woman wanted on felony warrants by Franklin County narcotics investigators were arrested April 17 south of Beaufort.
Narcotics detectives received information that Robert Cannon, 29, and Bridgette LaChance, 20, were at a residence on Highway 185 south of Beaufort. They were said to be occupying a Black Pontiac passenger car and were in the company of another male and female, according to a report from Franklin County Sheriff Gary F. Toelke.
Lawmen had been searching for both subjects for three weeks.
“Law enforcement including MSHP Troopers arrived at the residence as the vehicle was backing out of the drive,” Toelke reported. “The driver, who was identified as Robert Cannon, attempted to flee in the vehicle. He encountered a heavy wood line which stopped its forward momentum. He then fled on foot followed by law enforcement. Deputies were able to overtake Cannon after approximately 200 yards and he was taken into custody.
“MSHP Troopers and other law enforcement personnel assisting addressed the other three individuals who were stuck in the vehicle due to the heavy brush, one of which was LaChance,” Toelke added.
Detectives located drug paraphernalia and a substance believed to be methamphetamine inside the vehicle.
Cannon was taken into custody for active warrants for first-degree tampering and a parole violation. LaChance was taken into custody for active warrants for unlawful use of a weapon and felony possession of a controlled of substance.
A 40-year-old male from Union and a House Springs woman, 20, were taken into custody for investigation of possession of a controlled substance and hindering prosecution.
