Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards reported today (August 13, 2019) that on August 9, 2019,
TPSO Narcotics Agents arrested two Ponchatoula residents following numerous tips and complaints regarding alleged illicit drug activity in the area of Barnes and Dunson Roads in Ponchatoula.

Barnes advised that he had a concealed handgun in his waistband which was safely removed without incident. Tolley was detained for having outstanding arrest warrants.
