Inside, police found Klonipin pills hidden inside a dish towel and Lexapro pills not prescribed to the residents of the apartment, according to reports.

During a search of the vehicle, officers found 12 grams of suspected marijuana in a bag along marijuana in a tin can and burnt cigar wrappers containing suspected marijuana, the reports said. Paul reportedly told police she was aware of the drugs in the car and was the last person to drive the car.

Herring and Paul were arrested and taken to police headquarters; they were later transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. A probation and parole hold was placed on Herring.

Police say the investigation into the reported stolen items continues and additional charges are pending.
