The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office reported on Thursday, November 16 two men were arrested in Baton Rouge, after leaving Gonzales on Airline Highway in a chase.

26-year-old Litzan Reyes-Fuigueredo was driving. But before the vehicle stopped by leaving the roadway and attempting to correct itself at the intersection of Broadmoor Drive and Florida Boulevard, 26-year-old Carlos Delatorre reportedly jumped out of the vehicle early on Cedar Ridge Drive in Baton Rouge.

Delatorre is stated to have been apprehended quickly, and he held an undisclosed "quantity" of drugs.

The Louisiana State Police are credited by APSO for their help with the pursuit. A backpack was reported found inside the vehicle containing syringes, two digital scales, and several other drug paraphernalia items.

Reyes-Fuigueredo, of 636 Gloria Drive in Baton Rouge, was arrested and charged with aggravated flight from officer, two counts possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of Heroin, drug paraphernalia, three counts traffic-control signals, reckless operation, aggravated obstruction of a highway, tail lamps, and temporary registration plates issued by dealers.

Delatorre, of 16731 Stephanie Ave. in Baton Rouge, was arrested and charged with resisting an officer, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, possession of Heroin, two counts possession of marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

Both men were booked into the Ascension Parish Jail where no bond had been set when this information was shared. This information was provided by the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office.
