Parent, 61, 148 Kennedy St., St Rose, was arrested after officers executed a search warrant at his residence where cops say they found 105.4 grams of marijuana, 28 doses of methadone, 13 doses of Loratab, 118 doses of carisoprodol (Soma) along with a digital safe, scales and $9,541.29 in cash.

Louis was charged with four counts of possession with intent to distribute for all the illegal drugs in his residence and vehicle as well as possession of drug paraphernalia and three counts of illegal use of a controlled substance in the presence of juveniles.

Less than a week later, officers executed another search warrant at a Destrehan residence uncovering more than a pound of marijuana.
