Acadiana Crime Blotter for April 8, 2014

A 19-year-old Broussard man was booked on counts of terrorizing and disturbing the peace after he pulled out a stun gun during a Saturday afternoon movie when someone asked a woman he was with to stop texting at the Grand 14-Ambassador on Kaliste Saloom Road, according to police.

After producing the stun gun, Hunter Gordon Branam announced, “I’m going (to) get my gun,” and then left the theater, prompting several moviegoers to flee, according to a news release from Lafayette police.

Patrons alerted the management, who then contacted police, according to police.

Branam did not use the stun gun but did activate it, according to police.

The stun gun was located in a bathroom at the theater, police said, but no firearm was found.

Branam was released Sunday on bail of $5,000.

Man tries trading meat for drugs door-to-door

The Better Business Bureau of Acadiana on Monday advised residents to be on the lookout for a door-to-door meat salesman offering to trade prime cuts for prescription drugs.

One resident reported the man “first asked if she worked for a law enforcement agency then offered her the product of her choice as a trade for prescription drugs she might have in her home,” the BBB stated in an advisory.

The BBB also said the man stopped at an apartment for the disabled and elderly, possibly in search of the prescription medications that would be readily available there.
