NAPOLEONVILLE — A Donaldsonville man was arrested Monday after fleeing in his car at speeds over 100 mph from officers who had appeared as he sold synthetic marijuana in a sting by the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Mike Waguespack said.
Landon Glaviana, 20, 2269 La. 308, was booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center, with bail set at $25,739, on a count of aggravated flight from an officer, possession of synthetic marijuana and distribution of synthetic marijuana, Waguespack said in a news release.
After officers arrived in Belle Rose to make an arrest in what the Sheriff’s Office calls a controlled “buy/bust” operation, Glaviana sped away in his Infiniti on La. 1 toward Donaldsonville, Waguespack said.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office was notified, Waguespack said, and the pursuit ended on Sagona Road in Donaldsonville.
The suspected synthetic marijuana from the sting and a suspected synthetic marijuana cigarette were recovered from Glaviana, Waguespack said.
