LIVINGSTON – Four people were arrested July 5 as a result of a narcotics-related search warrant at a home in the 26000 block of Pen Drive in Walker, the Livingston Parish sheriff said.

“Our detectives have been watching this location after receiving information related to the selling and distribution of illegal narcotics from this home,” Sheriff Jason Ard said.

Detectives seized large quantities of marijuana, marijuana-infused edibles, THC wax, THC vape vials, marijuana plants, baggies and scales, Ard said.

All of this evidence is consistent with the selling and distribution of illegal narcotics, he said.

“We appreciate those alert Livingston Parish residents who choose to work with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office,” Ard said.
