Farmerville man arrested on drug charges

UNION Parish - A Farmerville man located underneath his residence by Union Parish sheriff’s deputies has been ordered to undergo psychological evaluations by a Third Judicial District Court judge.

Deputies arrested Jacob Charles Collie, 34, of 5930 Hwy. 549, on two felony drug counts of possession of methamphetamine and possession of Xanax. He also was charged with a misdemeanor count of unauthorized use of a movable. His total bond was set at $12,750.

Sheriff Dusty Gates said Collie was arrested Dec. 29 after the sheriff’s office received a call that he was in possession of narcotics. He also took the cell phone from the person who made the call to authorities, the sheriff said.

The caller told responding deputies that Collie ran out of the house before they arrived. After he was found, the suspect denied having any drugs, but a deputy crawled under the house and found the suspected narcotics and the cell phone, Gates said.

Judge Jay McCallum ordered the mental evaluations, documents showed.
