Deputies with the Adams County Special Operations Group executed a narcotics search warrant at the residence of Larry Allen and Donnalyn Le Duong.

Deputies found two glass jars containing approximately one-fourth of a pound of marijuana, a plastic container holding more than a half-pound of marijuana and a set of digital scales.

Allen, 37, 337 Concordia Drive, Ferriday, and Duong, 23, 5 Hummingbird Lane, were arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell or transfer and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Duong and Allen were released on a bond of $10,000.

Allen and Duong were arrested in December 2017 after another search yielded approximately 130 grams of marijuana, two handguns and $45,009 in cash.

Allen was still on probation at the time of the arrest for drug charges in Louisiana and Duong’s name is on the leasing agreement for another residence where the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics found 10 pounds of marijuana in 2017.
