Meth, gun recovered during complaint

WILDSVILLE — Concordia Narcotics Agents recovered 10 grams of suspected methamphetamine packaged for sale and a loaded weapon during a loud music complaint at a Wildsville house.

Agents Lt. Chris Groh and Greg Jackson responded to a loud music and suspected drug activity complaint at approximately 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at 713 Loop Road.

“The neighbors had made several complaints about the amount of traffic coming in and out of the house and the loud music,” Jackson said. “Upon making contact, Mrs. Kayla Hutto cooperated with us coming inside and agreed to give up some rolling papers which she said was the only thing in the house.

“I saw she had removed something else from a drawer, and when I asked her about it she dropped it on the floor.”

Hutto, 22, dropped a bag containing suspected methamphetamine packaged in plastic baggies for sale.

After searching the house further, agents found a lock box containing more than 10 grams of suspected methamphetamine packaged for sale along with digital scales, baggies and a magnetic container with meth residue used to transport illegal narcotics under vehicles.

Jackson estimated the street value of the recovered methamphetamine to be between $1,500 and $2,000.

A loaded Smith and Wesson .22-caliber automatic rifle was also found at the house.

Hutto, 713 Loop Road, Wildsville, was charged with possession of scheduled II with intent, possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying of weapons and possession of CDS.

Hutto’s mother and brother, who both lived at the Loop Road house, were also arrested on several charges.

Teresa Collins, 42, 131 Stephens Loop, Winnsboro, was charged with possession of scheduled II with intent, possession of scheduled IV, possession of scheduled III, possession of drug paraphernalia, convicted felon in possession of firearm and carrying of weapons and possession of CDS.

The agents also recovered one dose of Xanax and one dos of Klonopin from Collins.
