Ascension Parish Sheriff's office has arrested three people for prostitution and drug charges.

Narcotics Detectives along with Gonzales Police arrested Harold Butler, 31, and Jessica Normand, 31, of Donaldsonville for soliciting and prostitution charges.

Detectives received information of Normand providing escort services on a social media site. Undercover detectives arranged to meet Normand for sex. She requested that her boyfriend come with them as well and stay in the room next door while she was providing services.

The two were arrested when they arrived at a local hotel. Normand was charged with prostitution and felony contempt of court. Butler was charged with solicitation of prostitution as he knowingly provided transportation for the offense.

After Butler was in jail, detectives found out that he was trying to get someone to remove evidence from his home. A search warrant was obtained for the home on Nolan Street. Detectives located Butler's friend, Marcus Wilson, 22, who confessed to removing a gun and marijuana. Both items were recovered.

Officials also found marijuana, a handgun holster, hydrocone and a dead dog who appeared to have been neglected. Butler was also charged with carrying of weapons, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm, and aggravated cruelty to animals.

Wilson was charged with obstruction to justice.
