 Ulysses Lumpkin Jr, 54, Chitimacha Trail, Charenton, was arrested for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, distribution of marijuana, no driver's license, turning movements and required signals, and transaction involving proceeds from drug offense on August 31, 2020.

The Chitimacha Tribal Police K-9 Officer observed a traffic violation of a vehicle entering the Chitimacha Tribal Reservation. When the officer approached the driver of the vehicle, Ulysses Lumpkin Jr, the officer detected the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle

Lumpkin does not have a driver’s license and a subsequent search from the Chitimacha K-9 Dozer alerted Chitimacha Officer’s to additional narcotics. As the investigation progressed, Chitimacha Officers located marijuana, crack cocaine, and $15,201.00 in US Currency.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Department was contacted and their detectives were able to further the investigation, which led to additional charges outside of the Chitimacha Reservation.

Lumpkin was transported to the parish jail. This is an ongoing investigation and further arrests are anticipated.
