Drugs, counterfeit money and an illegal sawed-off shotgun were uncovered during a Tuesday raid near Denham Springs that led to three arrests, the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office announced Friday.
Deputies searched 12229 Brandon Ave. on a narcotics warrant and found 43 grams of methamphetamine, 19 tablets of alprazolam, 17 tablets of codeine and a small quantity of marijuana, according to a news release. Much of the drugs were packaged to sell, and deputies estimate their street value at $5,700.
Counterfeit money was also inside the home. Though the Sheriff’s Office did not specify how much fake currency was discovered, they released a photo of the seizures that shows a stack of cash topped with a bluish $100 bill.
Deputies also uncovered an unregistered shotgun that had been sawed down to an illegal length, the release states.
All three people at the home during the raid were arrested and as of Friday afternoon were being held at the Livingston Parish Detention Center.
Joseph Blaine “Sauce” Coon, 45, faces five drug-related counts, three weapons counts and a single count of monetary instrument abuse, according to jail records.
Lacie Marie Foley, 27, faces five drug-related counts, two weapons counts and a single count each of monetary instrument abuse and simple criminal damage to property.
