TANGIPAHOA PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

Five people are now behind bars after deputies confiscated drugs, stolen property, and weapons while following up on a lead related to a stolen vehicle, says the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office.

The following people were arrested and charged:

  • Bailey Johnson, 23, of Tickfaw: Possession of schedule II narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Shawn Landry, 24, of Hammond: Possession of schedule II narcotics (two counts), possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of stolen property
  • Garrett Reid, 26, of Hammond: Possession of schedule II narcotics 
  • James Roundtree, 24, of Hammond: Manufacturing schedule II narcotics (meth), possession of schedule II narcotics, and possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Randon Williams, 20, of Hammond: Resisting an officer by flight and possession of drug paraphernalia

Officials say around 9:20 p.m. Thursday night, deputies responded to the home of Roundtree in search of a stolen vehicle. When deputies arrived, they spoke with Williams, who reportedly fled on foot from deputies. Williams was quickly detained and taken into custody. As deputies continued the investigation, multiple knives were located inside the home and in Williams' possession, along with suspected illegal drugs.

Narcotics agent with TPSO arrived at the home and conducted a search of the home accompanied by Roundtree. While doing so, Johnson, Landry, and Reid were located and detained pending investigation.

Agents reported seeing in needles and syringes with suspect methamphetamine in plain sight, as well as a small, rolled cigarette believed to be marijuana, numerous small, clear plastic bags containing suspected meth, and a glass smoking pipe. Also located were a glass water smoking pipe, small, plastic clear bags, and two firearms in a small hole in the ceiling in the laundry room.

Detectives were also able to recover the stolen vehicle.

It was found that Williams had an active warrant out through the Hammond Police Department. Landry also had two outstanding warrants through the 21st Judicial District Court.

"I couldn't be more proud of the hard work and dedication displayed by members of my department," said Sheriff Daniel Edwards.
