SAREPTA — A complaint by social services led to the arrest of a Sarepta couple on drug charges after sheriff’s deputies were asked to assist in the investigation.

Junice Justin Rogers, 43, of the 500 block of Kings Corner Road in Sarepta, was charged with possession of Schedule II CDS (methamphetamine), possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $25,500.

Lindsey Denise Thompson, 33, of the same address was charged with possession of Schedule II CDS (methamphetamine), possession of a firearm in the presence of a CDS and possession of drug paraphernalia. Bond was set at $25,560.

According to the police report, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Lt. Shawn K. Baker, Marshal Louie Newton and Springhill Police Chief Will Lynd went with the Department of Social Services regarding a complaint of illegal drug use by the couple in the presence of a minor.

Officers made contact with Rogers and Thompson and noted a three-year-old child inside the residence. They explained why they were there and asked for consent to search the residence.

Once given consent, the search revealed an undetermined amount of suspected methamphetamine as well as four sets of digital scales, a glass pipe and three handguns.

Rogers and Thompson were placed under arrest and booked at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
