Officers spoke with Robinson and a police K-9 was used to search the 2021 Black Cadillac Escalade. A subsequent search of the vehicle by officers uncovered what was believed to be various narcotics.
Thibodaux police say they were able to get search warrants after this traffic stop which allowed them to search Robinson’s properties.
That search led to officers finding more than $120,000 in narcotics. Officers also reported finding:
Approximately 3.16 pounds of suspected crystal methamphetamineApproximately 2.22 pounds of suspected cocaine (1 kilo)Approximately 38.89 pounds of suspected marijuanaApproximately 4 grams of crack cocaineApproximately 227 doses of suspected hydrocodoneApproximately 48 doses of suspected oxycodoneApproximately 18 doses of alprazolamA large assortment of drug trafficking and packaging equipment/paraphernaliaFirearm magazines and ammunitionA small amount of U.S. currencyImage courtesy of Thibodaux Police Department
Robinson was arrested and is currently in the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex.
The former NFL player is charged with two felony counts of possession with intent to distribute cocaine, in addition to felony possession with intent to distribute: crack cocaine, hydrocodone, marijuana, alprazolam, and methamphetamine.
Robinson is being held on a $315,000 bond.
In 2020, Robinson was jailed in West Texas after federal officials said they found 157 pounds of marijuana in a car in which he and another man – former NFL wide receiver Jaquan Tyreke Bray – were riding. Both men were accused of driving from Los Angeles to Louisiana when the Border Patrol stopped them and found several large duffel bags of marijuana in their sport utility vehicle.
