Why four people were arrested over a loaf of bread

A loaf of bread has led to four people being arrested after police conducted a traffic stop.

Reggie Estay, 46, from Larose in the US state of Louisiana, was pulled over on Tuesday and a sniffer dog determined drugs were in the car.

Estay had been under investigation for the sale of drugs and in the car police found a loaf of bread inside a package.

“Inside the package, they discovered part of the loaf had been hollowed out to conceal a bag containing over 50 grams of suspected methamphetamine,” police said.

A search was then conducted in Estay’s home.

“Inside the residence, agents located additional methamphetamine, cash, and other items commonly associated with the sale of narcotics. Additionally, agents located three individuals at the residence who were each in possession of methamphetamine,” police said.

The three people were named as: Robin Morant, 53, Sherman Allen Jr, 40, and Sue Gisclair, 41.

Police said Allen was found to also be in possession of heroin.

All four have been charged with drug-related offences.

It was the second time in two months police had searched the property and made arrests, police said.

Estay was also arrested for drug possession in May.

Earlier this year, a man was also arrested for possessing meth and a handgun after unwittingly sharing an incriminating photo online.

He posted an ad on Facebook trying to sell a catalytic converter however someone spotted a syringe and a packet of a white substance on the table in the photo.

That photo was handed to police who made an arrest.
