At around 5 p.m. on Monday, a K-9 deputy traveling along LA Highway 308 conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the Larose area. The deputy identified the driver, Waylon Darsey, and a passenger, Crystal Benoit, as having active warrants, and they were immediately taken into custody as other deputies arrived to assist.
