Three Violet residents were arrested Jan. 9 on felony drug charges, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.
James Thomas, 48, Alvin Thompson, 66, and Tiffany Thompson, 38, all of the 2800 block of Stacie Drive in Violet, were booked with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia after agents obtained a search warrant for their home.
St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Agents executed the search warrant shortly after 3 p.m. when they came in contact with the three subjects.
Once inside the home, Sheriff Pohlmann said, Narcotics Agents recovered one clear plastic bag containing a white powder-like substance determined through field testing to be cocaine, a burnt hand-rolled cigar containing marijuana, and several rock-like objects which field tested positive to be crack cocaine. Pipes, plastic bags and a chor boy, a type of scouring pad commonly used during the smoking of crack cocaine also were recovered.
Alvin Thompson is being held in St. Bernard Parish Prison on a $21,750 bond; Tiffany Thompson was released on a bond in the same amount.
Thomas also was booked on outstanding warrants out of the New Orleans Police Department and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and was transported to Orleans Parish Prison.
