ALEXANDRIA, LA (WAFB) -

An Alexandria man was arrested Monday after being charged with selling drugs out of the Store-N-Lock facility that he owns.

Earlier this month, troopers with the Louisiana State Police Alexandria Field Office received information that 49-year-old Stephen D. Holsomback was allegedly distributing marijuana, methamphetamine and cocaine from the storage facility.

Monday, LSP AFO and the Alexandria Police Department served a search warrant at the storage facility and found more than 10 pounds of marijuana, more than 20 ounces of methamphetamine, more than 4 ounces of cocaine and more than $4,000 in cash.

Holsomback was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center where he was charged with distribution of marijuana, two counts of distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, two counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and two counts of possession with the intent to distribute.
