GONZALES — A man and a 16-year-old runaway staying with him were arrested Thursday after Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies found methamphetamine, heroin and guns in the man’s home, Sheriff Jeff Wiley said.
The arrests came as deputies investigated an assault complaint against the man, Fabian Mills, 40, after a woman told deputies that he came to her home, threatening her with a gun. Mills also told the woman he was looking for her son, who Mills claims had stolen $5,000 worth of heroin and a firearm from him, Wiley said in a news release.
Mills was arrested at his Gonzales home, 714 S. Sammy St., where deputies also found and arrested a 16-year-old runaway from Livingston Parish, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies also found meth, heroin, drug paraphernalia, two firearms, and a shotgun and revolver that had been reported stolen, the report said. Also at the house were several items of clothing, still with tags on them, that may have been stolen from a local store.
Mills was booked into Ascension Parish Jail on counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of heroin, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, two counts of illegal possession of stolen firearms, illegal carrying of weapons and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
The bail for Mills has been set at $126,089.
The juvenile was booked into the Assumption Parish Youth Detention Center in Napoleonville on counts of possession of meth, possession of heroin, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
