Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says four people in Haughton were arrested Wednesday by agents of the department’s Special Investigation’s Bureau, removing a substantial amount of drugs off the streets.
Agents seized more than three pounds of marijuana, as well as weapons, drug paraphernalia, a stolen street sign and two vehicles from a residence in the 1000 block of Huckaby Road in Haughton evening after receiving a tip that the residents were growing marijuana at the house.
Arrested were Michael Arceneaux, 18, and his mother, Patricia Arceneaux, 41, who reside at the said house on Huckaby. Also arrested were Lauren Tomb, 18, of the 200 block of Mill Creek Lane in Haughton, and Robert C. Best, 19, of the 600 block of Jade Circle in Haughton.
Bossier Sheriff’s detectives conducted surveillance of the home after receiving the tip about a week earlier. After obtaining a search warrant, they executed a search of the home on Wednesday afternoon and seized 15 marijuana plants, 11 grams of marijuana, multiple weapons, and a number items of drug paraphernalia in the house. Detectives also found a stolen street sign belonging to Michael.
While detectives were at the house, they discovered that Michael and Robert, who were not present at the house during the search, were coming back to the residence with a large amount of marijuana they had just purchased in Colorado. When they arrived at the house on Huckaby, the two were met by Bossier detectives, who then searched the vehicle which was registered to Best. Detectives found a storage bag with three pounds of marijuana, as well as one Zanax pill in bottle prescribed to Patricia Arceneaux.
