Bond money that smelled of marijuana leads to a drug bust in Terrebonne Parish.

Investigators with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office said on Friday, March 5, Stormy Lynn Parfait, 34, went to the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex to bond out an inmate being held on narcotics charges.

Parfait paid $5,000 in cash for the bond but a jail supervisor noticed an overwhelming odor of marijuana on the money.

A detective later approached the woman, who had returned to her vehicle in the jail parking lot.  Police say they searched her car and found $39,868 in cash along with 96 Klonopin pills and a food stamp card that police say, did not belong to the woman.


A warrant was obtained to search the woman’s home on the 200 block of Bon Jovi Boulevard in Gray Louisiana.

At her home, narcotics agents found four unattended children, who were turned over to a relative. They also found two Klonopin pills, 704 Tizanidine pills, 3.56 ounces of marijuana, 5.61 ounces of cocaine, 25 THC pins, a bottle of Promethazine, digital scales and packing equipment and $945 in currency.

Parfait was booked on several drug charges including taking contraband to or into a correctional institution.

She is being held at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex with no bond.
