Sheriff Greg Champagne is pleased to announce that on Monday, April 18, 2022, several detectives and members of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office and members of the Louisiana Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control conducted an Alcohol and Tobacco Compliance operation. This operation occurred throughout the parish and yielded several arrests and violations.
Sheriff Champagne would like to thank the four underage operatives that assisted detectives with this operation. Without their help, the operation would not have been so successful. Operations like these are necessary to keep vapes, cigarettes, and alcohol from being sold to underage citizens in St. Charles Parish.
