APSO says on Wednesday, Jan. 16, detectives searched three homes in the parish, resulting in a large amount of drugs being seized from three different houses.

The investigation began after the sheriff’s office received multiple reports about drugs being sold at the three homes, two on Moran Road and one on Richard Miles Road. After searching the three houses, deputies seized the following:

  • 1.4 lbs of marijuana

  • 2.4 lbs of methamphetamine
  • 3 oz of crack cocaine
  • 1.6 oz of cocaine
  • Three handguns (one of which was reported stolen)
  • Digital scale
  • $3,000 in cash

While searching one of the homes, juveniles were found in the home. Those juveniles were placed in the custody of next of kin.

Two arrests were made as a result of the searches.
