In April 2014, a St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office narcotics detective assigned to the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, along with FBI agents, initiated an investigation into Adam Landry (DOB 8/10/1980).

Landry was suspected of trafficking narcotics.

On Saturday morning, July 12, 2014, St. John Parish narcotics detectives along with Homeland Security Investigations conducted a traffic stop on Landry in St John Parish.  During the stop it was determined that Landry’s girlfriend, Miranda Davis (DOB 2/13/1983) and their three small children were also in the vehicle. 

Following a search of the vehicle, St. John Parish detectives and H.S.I. investigators discovered more than 100 pounds of marijuana inside the vehicle.  H.S.I. is comprised of both Homeland Security Special Agents, St. Tammany Parish Narcotics Task Force members and Task Force Officers from surrounding jurisdictions.

Investigators then determined that both Landry and Davis resided at 1015 McBeth Drive, Slidell, inside the Pinehurst Subdivision. 

Believing the residence contained additional narcotics, the St. Tammany Parish Narcotics Task Force obtained probable cause to execute a state search warrant for the residence. 

During a collaborative search of the residence involving members of the FBI, HSI, St. John Sheriff’s Office and STPSO, the following was discovered:

3.9 pounds of Heroin; Street value: $150k to $180k

½ pounds of Marijuana; Street value: $2500

A loaded .40 caliber pistol 

A loaded 9mm pistol

A loaded Ruger .223 assault rifle

$1,370 in U.S. Currency

A prescription bottle of Dilaudid liquid

The above items along with the currency were seized as evidence by the STPSO.

Miranda Davis was arrested by the STPSO and booked at the St. Tammany Parish jail on two counts of possession with Intent to Distribute Schedule I (Heroin/Marijuana); Simple Possession of Schedule II (Dilaudid liquid); Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Possession of Drug Proceeds; and Possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS.

STPSO Detectives are seeking arrest warrants for Landry, who is still incarcerated in the St. John Parish Jail.
