A St. Tammany Parish drug task force has arrested two people and is seeking one other after discovering a marijuana selling operation running in an Abita Springs home, Spokeswoman Suzanne Carboni said.
Wyrick Tyson, 37, and Ashley Flemming, 28, were both booked on counts of possession of marijuanan with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia as well as drug counts.
A search of the home on La. 435 uncovered 2.5 pounds of “high grade marijuana” worth approximately $12,000, Carboni said. Detectives also found another 2.5 pounds of “wax,” or “dabs,” a substance with a high concentration of THC, which produces the high from marijuana. That had a street value of approximately $65,000 to $100,000, Carboni said. Digital scales and a gun were also found at the house.
Detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for Flemming’s mother, Jeanette Guderian. Detectives believe Guderian may have been involved in selling drugs. Anyone with any knowledge of Guderian’s whereabouts is asked to call the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Division at (985) 276-1400.
