ST. LANDRY PARISH, La. (KLFY) — St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says an undercover traffic stop led to the discovery of more than $5K in cash and a semi automatic handgun.

Guidroz said detectives also located a 1-year-old infant inside the vehicle during the stop.

It happened Monday in the parish.

Detectives made contact with a silver Kia Sorento occupied by Jaquayland Trevon Bradley Rosette, 24 of Sunset. 

A search of the vehicle turned up a semi-automatic handgun, 2 pounds of marijuana and $5400 in cash.  

Guidroz said the estimated street value of the marijuana was approximately $18K.

Rosette was transported to the St. Landry parish Jail and charged with illegal use of a CDS in the presence of persons under 17 years of age, possession with intent to distribute schedule I CDS (marijuana), transactions involving proceeds from drug offenses, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS.

The infant was not harmed.
