PRAIRIEVILLE — A tip about a package of illegal drugs being delivered to the home of a Prairieville man led to the man’s arrest Wednesday.
Narcotics agents were watching the home at 18207 Kenner Ave. and saw the package sitting outside the house when the homeowner, Jeremy Munnerlyn, 36, arrived, said Maj. Kevin Hanna, of the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Munnerlyn said he knew nothing about the package but confessed to having marijuana in his home, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives returned with a search warrant and found 11 pounds of marijuana and 24 vials of hash oil in the package outside the home.
Inside the home, detectives found more marijuana, along with clonazepam, a drug used to treat anxiety, and drug paraphernalia, Hanna said in a news release.
Munnerlyn’s 12-year-old-daughter was living in the home, but the girl’s mother lives elsewhere, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies notified the mother, who picked up the girl.
Munnerlyn was booked into Ascension Parish Jail on two counts of possession with intent to distribute a Schedule I controlled dangerous substance, marijuana; one count of possession of drug paraphernalia; one count of possession of a Schedule IV controlled dangerous substance, the clonazepam; and one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of persons under 17.
Munnerlyn was released Thursday on a bond of just over $100,000.
