Pair face charges after home disturbance report

A home disturbance call from the Tidwell Landing area led to the apprehension and arrest of two individuals on various charges Sunday night, according to LaSalle Sheriff Scott Franklin.

LaSalle Parish deputies were dispatched to a residence on Tidwell Landing Road Sunday night, Aug. 19, in reference to a man at the home causing a disturbance.

While enroute to the home, deputies were informed that the man and his girlfriend had left the home in a grey Honda Accord, headed toward Jena.

Deputies observed the grey Honda Accord traveling north on Hwy 127, and initiated a traffic stop on Walkerville Road near Hwy 127.

Contact was made with the driver, identified as Amanda Elliott, age 33, of Jena. She was questioned about the disturbance at the home.  Elliott advised deputies that her boyfriend, Chad Wells, age 40, of Jena, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was upset due to people coming to their home messing with stuff.

While deputies were speaking with Elliott, Wells attempted to climb from the passenger seat of the vehicle out of the driver’s side window.  Wells was instructed to remain in the vehicle until he was told to get out.

Deputies did a hand search of the vehicle and located a baggie containing suspected methamphetamine.  Elliott was advised of her rights, and she admitted that the baggie of methamphetamine belonged to her.

Amanda Elliott was transported to the LaSalle Parish Jail in Jena and booked on charges of possession of CDS II – methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Chad Wells was transported to the LPSO Jail to be held on a parole violation.
