A traffic stop in the Seventh District on August 6, 2017, led to the arrest of four individuals on various charges.
At about 11:15 p.m., Seventh District officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop for an observed traffic violation. However, the driver of the vehicle – later identified as Fredrick Lowe (DOB: 08-16-1998) – disregarded the officer’s signal and led the officers on a brief vehicle pursuit that ended at the intersection of Bullard Avenue and Midpoint Drive.
Upon the vehicle coming to a stop, the four individuals occupying the vehicle exited and fled in different directions. With the assistance of Louisiana State Police and Seventh District Task Force detectives, all four subjects were apprehended.

Individual searches led detectives to find that Lowe and Greenidge were in possession of small plastic bags of material tested and confirmed to be marijuana. Additionally, a search of the vehicle resulted in the detectives locating and confiscating two handguns and a small digital scale. Further investigation revealed that Dolce and Poole are both convicted felons.
