On Tuesday (July 25, 2023), detectives with the Proactive Enforcement Unit of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Division arrived at a residence in the Abita Nursery Subdivision as a follow-up to a previous investigation and found 31 year-old Jouquan Dennis seated in a pick-up truck in the front yard of the residence. He was actively smoking marijuana.
Pursuant to a search of Dennis’ person, he was found to be in possession of approximately 100 dosage units of blue pills scored “M30”, which were identified as oxycodone, but suspected to be counterfeit pills containing fentanyl. Dennis was arrested for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Schedule II.
At the time of this arrest, Dennis was out on bond for a May 24, 2023 arrest for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Schedule II (fentanyl), Proceeds Relative to a Narcotics Transaction, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possession of a Firearm in the Presence of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, and Possession of a Stolen Firearm.
“Once again, thanks to the hard work of our Proactive Enforcement Unit, we have arrested a repeat offender and taken more fentanyl off the streets,” Sheriff Randy Smith said.
