Sheriff Jayson Richardson would like to inform the public that over the past month, Narcotics Agents have made several arrests involving the distribution of dangerous narcotics in and around DeSoto Parish. These arrests involve Meth, Cocaine, and Crack, among other drug and firearm related charges.
The Sheriff’s office said, “Each month we try to let the public know what is being done about those who aim to distribute dangerous drugs within our Parish, and potentially to our younger and more vulnerable community.”

The Sheriff’s Office said, “We expect many more arrests to come in connection with these investigations.”
