Introduction of Contraband into APSO DC-1 Jail – Illegal Drugs found

On April 15, 2022, upon returning from 12th Judicial District Court, a pre-trial offender incarcerated at Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office (APSO) DC-1 Jail Facility attempted to smuggle contraband into the jail facility.  Deputies intercepted the Controlled Dangerous Substances and other contraband during the return/intake process.  A thorough search conducted by APSO Corrections Staff revealed that 20-year-old Anthony Littles of Bunkie, LA, had concealed on his person, Synthetic Cannabinoids, Methamphetamines, cigars, loose tobacco, and a cellphone with a charger.

Further investigation led to the arrest of Littles on April 20, 2022, for the offenses of Possession of Schedule I Drugs with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Schedule II Drugs with Intent to Distribute, Introduction of Contraband into a Penal Facility, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  The preliminary investigation revealed it is likely that the contraband was retrieved from the courthouse restroom.  The investigation is ongoing.  He was booked on the new charges at APSO DC-1.  The bond was set at $25,000.00.  In September of 2021, he was incarcerated for a Second-Degree Battery offense.  His bond was set at $25,000.00 for that offense.  He is still incarcerated at APSO at this time.
