NAPOLEONVILLE, LA (WAFB) - During a search warrant early Friday morning, deputies with the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office Narcotics Task Force carried out a search warrant at a Napoleonville home and found about $1,200 in heroin, but the suspect was not home at the time.

When deputies arrived at the home on Matthew Street around 1 a.m., they found approximately six grams of heroin, one Adderall, a digital scale and individual plastic bags.

After the search warrant was executed, an arrest warrant was issued for 27-year-old Ronald B. Southall. He has been charged with possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession of Adderall, possession of drug paraphernalia, and three counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a juvenile.
