Fishing High is New Low for Local Pair

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Two individuals who were fishing high were the catch of the day for Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries last weekend.

William Robert Gordon, 25, of the 100 block of Sheryl Rd., Minden, was arrested by LDWF Agents Lt. Kenny Balkom and Sgt. Jared McIver and charged with illegal possession of Marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Gordon was reportedly fish with Michael James Augustin, 25, of the 6600 block of Hwy. 527, Doyline. Augustin was charged with possession of Sch. II Methamphetamine, possession of Sch. I Marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to comply with PFD requirements.

Agents were reportedly patrolling Lake Bistineau at Clark’s Bayou, when they approached the subjects’ small aluminum boat and detected the odor of Marijuana.

When asked, Augustin reportedly admitted to Marijuana and handed agents a small partially-burned Marijuana cigarette from inside a tackle box.
