A Lacombe couple was arrested after detectives with St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Task Force located a variety of drugs inside their residence, including a large amount of suspected crack cocaine.
As part of an ongoing narcotics investigation, task force members executed a search warrant at a residence at 25626 West Chestnut Drive in Lacombe at daybreak Wednesday (July26).
