Narcotics Roundup Follow-Up

From the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office

On March 6th we shared that DeSoto Narcotics Agents had made six arrests in DeSoto Parish related to the distribution of dangerous drugs, “with more to come.” We follow-up that post with three more arrests made after further investigations were wrapped up last week.

Over the course of these investigations, narcotics agents were able to take the following individuals into custody on charges ranging from the Distribution and/or Possession of Cocaine and Meth, as well as possession of a firearm in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS).

William Curtis Durant – possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of schedule cocaine with intent to distribute.

Jalin Paul Taylor – distribution of schedule II (meth), possession of a firearm in the presence of controlled dangerous substance, and illegal use of weapons or dangerous instruments.

Amelia Wolfe – possession of schedule II (Meth).

These and other arrests are part of a broader effort by Sheriff Jayson Richardson and DeSoto Narcotics Agents to hold accountable those who would wish to distribute dangerous drugs to our DeSoto families and/or children. Those efforts are ongoing, and we fully expect more to come.
