Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint of a man passed out at a convenience store east of Elton.
When deputies arrived, they discovered Daniel Stroder (26) asleep in a car. Deputies woke him up and discovered a smoking pipe and drugs on his pants. They also found a black taped pipe that resembled an explosive device. Officials took Stroder out of the car and evacuated the area. A state police haz-mat unit removed the device and destroyed it with a small explosive charge.
Stroder was arrested and charged with three counts related to drug possession, but he could face additional charges.
