Lafayette crime blotter for March 29, 2014

Authorities search for man in battery case

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office is looking for a Lafayette man wanted in a second-degree sexual battery case.

Juan Rene Singleterry, 30, possibly has a firearm, is a Hispanic man, weighs 190 to 210 pounds, has brown eyes and has a shaved head that grows black hair, Capt. Kip Judice said in a release.

Singleterry, who was last seen in a white Chevrolet Trailblazer, is wanted for allegedly assaulting a female he knows. He might have fled to Dallas.

Authorities have issued a nationwide alert, Judice said.

Pair arrested in hotel drug case

Crowley police Friday afternoon arrested a couple investigators believe sold synthetic marijuana out of a rented hotel room, officials said.

Leron Angel Jr., 37, and Bethany Welch, 19, both of Crowley, were booked into jail on counts of possession with intent to distribute synthetic marijuana. Angel also faces one count of having money derived from drug proceeds, Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson said in a release.

“We have been receiving information that local citizens have been renting hotel rooms to sell their illegal narcotics rather than selling it on the street,” Gibson said. “The belief is that the traffic at the hotel would blend in with those going to the hotel to make narcotics transactions.”

Gibson said detectives surveilled several hotels in Crowley and contacted the occupants of one hotel room.

He said detectives confiscated 61 packets of synthetic marijuana and currency from the couple in the room.
