Working together with agents and task force officers with their federal partners at the DEA, detectives with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Narcotics Division and Proactive Enforcement Unit executed a federal search warrant at a Slidell-area home on Thursday (January 18, 2024) evening.
A search of a residence in the 3400 block of Tupelo Lane residence, which was the home of 39 year-old Jarrett Paul Narcisse, led to the discovery and seizure of cocaine, more than seven and a half pounds of marijuana, more than one and a half pounds of THC wax/butter, drug paraphernalia, a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun with a 50 round drum magazine and $7,125 cash.
It was also determined that Narcisse was previously convicted of a felony drug charge, prohibiting him from legally possessing the firearm.
Narcisse was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center for the offenses of Possession with Intent to Distribute Schedule I CDS (marijuana) – Felony, Possession with Intent to Distribute Schedule II CDS (cocaine) – Felony, Transactions Involving Proceeds from Drug Offenses – Felony, Illegal Carrying of Weapon During Crime of Violence or While in Possession of CDS – Felony, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon – Felony, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia – Misdemeanor.
STPSO Narcotics Detectives recently received an anonymous complaint/tip about Narcisse, who was already the target of the ongoing DEA investigation.
“We will continue to work with our residents and our local, state and federal partners to identify and arrest the individuals responsible for bringing illegal narcotics into our neighborhoods,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “I thank everyone who worked together on this case as well as our alert residents who continue to call in tips when they notice something suspicious.”
Sheriff Smith is asking anyone with information about narcotics, or other crimes, to submit a tip utilizing the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office website (www.STPSO.com), or by calling the narcotics tip line (1-888-GO-2-JAIL).
