The sheriff's office reported 1,300 doses, most of which were Oxycodone pills, were seized on October 8 during a search of the home after a warrant was obtained. Authorities said the pills are worth about $24,000. They added several guns and stolen items were also found in the home.

Brunty faces the following charges:

Possession of Schedule 2 CDS (4 counts)

Possession of Schedule 3 CDS (1 count)

Possession of Schedule 4 CDS (3 counts)

Illegal possession of stolen things

Illegal carrying of weapon pen

She remained in the Livingston Parish Detention Center Wednesday morning.

David and Jones were also arrested at Brunty's home. David was booked on one count of possession of marijuana. Jones is charged with illegal possession of stolen things.

Both men have since posted bail and were released. Bond information was not provided on any of the suspects.

Deputies said the investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected.
