DENHAM SPRINGS, LA: Narcotics agents find nearly $400,000 worth of marijuana inside home


Four people were taken into custody on drug charges after the search of a home turned up over 30 lbs. of marijuana Wednesday evening.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested Anna Vaughn, 33, Corey Vaughn, 35, Michael Jones Jr., 43, and Jeanette White, 37. All four lived at a home on Spur Road in Denham Springs. According to investigators, Corey Vaughn tried to run away but a police dog got to him before he made it very far.

Agents said they seized 11,900 grams of high grade “buds,” 1,878 grams of Hashish and about 100 marijuana plants. It is believed the drugs have a street value of about $394,000.

Deputies said they also found two handguns, 8,450 in cash and packaging material used to help distribute the drugs.

The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services was called because there was a 15-year-old living in the home.

All four suspects were still locked up at the Livingston Parish Detention Center as of Friday morning.

The investigation is ongoing and deputies said more arrests are possible.
