According to an affidavit of probable cause, a server noticed a handgun sitting in plain sight on Stcyr’s lap while serving him. She notified the manager who then notified police. The theater has a no-weapons policy which is clearly posted on the front door.

Upon arrival, officers contacted Stcyr, conducted a pat down and felt the firearm in his front right pocket. The gun was a 9mm Glock model 26 handgun. A serial number search revealed the gun to be listed as stolen. Stcyr was placed under arrest and searched further, revealing a baggie of cocaine and 7 pills in his left pocket.

Stcyr admitted that the baggie contained cocaine. Officers suspected the pills were Oxycodone but the report does not specify if that was the case.

He was booked and transported to EBR Parish Prison where he is currently being held awaiting a bond hearing.

Stcyr has a previous arrest from 2017 for possession of a stolen firearm.
