During the pat-down, officers located a clear plastic baggie containing Crystal Meth in Perrilloux's pant pocket, a pill bottle containing tin foil packs of heroin individually packaged for sale, two syringes, and over $1,200 in U.S. Currency.
The 23rd Judicial District Court sentenced 22-year-old Dwight Perrilloux of 37214 St. Marie Ave, Prairieville, La. to 15 years in the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served for Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Schedule I Controlled Dangerous Substance.
Perrilloux was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Charles “Chuck” Long, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Tess Stromberg. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following an April 28, 2017 disturbance at an area Wal-Mart.
According to the release: "Upon arrival, [Gonzales] officers met with a female subject who was identified as Perrilloux’s significant other. The female advised that she was approached by Perrilloux while working, and Perrilloux began to cause a disturbance. Perrilloux fled the area prior to the arrival of officers. A short while later, officers located Perrilloux on Weber City Rd. riding a bicycle.
"Upon making contact with Perrilloux, officers conducted a pat-down search of Perrilloux’s outer clothing. During the pat-down, officers located a clear plastic baggie containing Crystal Meth in Perrilloux’s pant pocket, a pill bottle containing tin foil packs of heroin individually packaged for sale, two syringes, and over $1,200 in U.S. Currency. Perrilloux was subsequently arrested and transported to the Ascension Parish Jail where he was booked accordingly."
Perrilloux was in the spotlight back in 2014 for a head-on collision that killed 15-year-old Claire Carline. Moreover, he was arrested in 2013 for selling marijuana at Dutchtown High School, according to a WBRZ news story. His Ascension Parish arrest record also indicates that he was arrested again in 2015 for misdemeanor simple battery, a misdemeanor domestic abuse battery, and a felony unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
