Louisiana Felon Arrested After Officers Reportedly Found Drugs, Paraphernalia, and Firearms During a Compliance Check

Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Office – A Louisiana man was arrested on December 28, 2022, after a probation officer visited his home and reportedly found drugs, paraphernalia, and weapons, including a loaded pistol and a shotgun.

On December 29, 2022, Sabine Parish Sheriff Aaron Mitchell confirmed the arrest of Larry Maurice Malmay, 46, of Zwolle on December 28, 2022.
A Louisiana Probation and Parole Agent visited Malmay’s Fuller Lane home to conduct a compliance check. Malmay was on probation for a prior narcotics offense.

The Agent reportedly smelled a strong stench of marijuana emanating from inside Malmay’s home while speaking with him at the door. Malmay then told the Agent that he had a shotgun hidden under his mattress. The Agent attempted to handcuff Malmay, but he resisted and fled into the woods from the residence.

Agents from the Sabine Parish Sheriff’s Tactical Narcotics Team, Patrol Deputies, and a K-9 unit were sent to the scene to look for Malmay.
A short time later, Sheriff K-9 “Kay” and handler Sgt Nick Sandel spotted Malmay in the woods near the property.

Malmay was arrested with $4,680 in cash in his pockets.

A .410 shotgun, a loaded 9mm pistol, suspected marijuana and methamphetamine, Alprazolam, Oxycodone, Diazepam, Hydrocodone, and Amphetamine pills, clear baggies, and a weighing scale were found and seized inside Malmay’s residence.

Malmay was booked into the Sabine Parish Detention Center for, 2-counts Possession of firearm by persons convicted of certain felonies, 2-counts Illegal carrying of weapons (while in possession of CDS), Possession with intent to distribute schedule I (Marijuana), Possession with intent to distribute schedule II (Meth), Possession with intent to distribute schedule IV (Alprazolam), Possession with intent to distribute schedule IV (Diazepam), Possession of schedule II (D Amphetamine), Possession of schedule II (Oxycodone), Possession of schedule II (Hydrocodone), and Possession of drug paraphernalia, Second or subsequent offenses.

His bond was set at $60,000 by the 11th Judicial District Court.

An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged. A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
