SCOTT — Police responding to a call from a woman who said her grown son refused to go to dialysis treatment ended up arresting a Youngsville man at the home and seizing about $1,400 worth of methamphetamine.
David Nevins, 38, was booked on counts of possessing drug paraphernalia and possession with intent to distribute crystal meth after police spotted a dirty glass pipe in his pocket and found about 7 grams of the drug — said to be his — at the woman’s home in the 100 block of Rimrock Street, Scott Police Chief Chad Leger said in a news release.
Nevins is a friend of the son and was supposed to have brought him to dialysis treatment that day, but the two returned to the house after an argument, Leger said.
Police found the woman’s son drifting in and out of lucidity when they arrived, so they began questioning Nevins about whether the man had been using narcotics, Leger said. Nevins was sweating profusely and was refusing to answer questions when police spotted the pipe in his pocket. They located the drugs in another room of the home.
Nevins remained in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on Wednesday evening in lieu of $22,2000 bail.
