SPRINGHILL — A father-daughter team has been taken into custody in Springhill, following an investigation of illegal narcotics activities at their residence.
Lacie Lasha Poe, 18, and Benjamin D. Poe, 45, of the 900 block of 1st St. S.E., Springhill, were arrested by North Webster Narcotics Task Force agents on drug charges.
Lt. Shawn Baker says Lacie Poe was in Ward II court when she was arrested for distribution of CDS Sch. II methamphetamine.
“This was the result of an ongoing investigation at her residence where agents purchased methamphetamine from her,” Baker said.
Later the same day, Baker and Det. Ronald Wedgeworth made contact with Benjamin Poe, also at Ward II Court.
“We explained we had purchased methamphetamine and marijuana from his residence on several occasions,” Baker said. “We obtained a waiver of search of his residence after he admitted he had used methamphetamine that day before going to court.”
The agents, along with Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd and Det. Bryan Montgomery reportedly searched the residence and discovered suspected methamphetamine, along with several items of drug paraphernalia.
Benjamin Poe was arrested for possession of Sch. II methamphetamine. Father and daughter were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
