Lafayette man pleads in cocaine case

A Lafayette man pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

Calvin James Catalon Jr., 35, faces up to 40 years in prison, four years of supervised release and a $5 million fine when he’s sentenced on Aug. 28 by U.S. District Judge Patricia Manaldi.

Catalon was stopped Jan. 17 on Interstate 10 by a Lake Charles police officer who found 35 ounces of cocaine in Catalon’s vehicle, U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley said in a news release.

The FBI, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Lake Charles police and the Calcasieu Anti-drug Team investigated the case prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph T. Mickel.
