DUTCHTOWN, LA (WAFB) - Authorities arrested two teens they pulled over after seeing what they suspect was a drug deal in a parking lot.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office reported Logan Harris, 17, and Austin Blades, 17, both of Prairieville, were taken into custody Monday.
Narcotics detectives said they saw people in two cars making what looked like a drug deal in the parking lot of a Dutchtown business. They said they then stopped one of the vehicles and found hydroponic marijuana inside after searching it.
Both teens were charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Harris, who was driving the car, was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia because investigators reported finding a marijuana pipe inside of it.
They are both awaiting bond.
