Deputies arrested two alleged drug dealers after intercepting a text message on a cell phone found in home being searched, according to a release from Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office (JDPSO).
On Wednesday, July 30, Jefferson Davis Sheriff's detectives executed a search warrant in Roanoke, LA on 209 5th street, discovering a cell phone in the process. The phone displayed a text message asking if any "hyro" (slang for marijuana) was needed. Replying to the message, detectives arranged to purchase a quarter ounce of marijuana for a price of $150. Detectives also recovered 82 packages of synthetic marijuana, approximately 1000 grams.
Using unmarked vehicles, the detectives waited at the WalMart on East Interstate Drive in unmarked vehicles for a suspect to arrive.
Deputies said the suspect arrived and sent a text message to meet at the gas pump at Murphy USA. Detectives described observing one red vehicle parked at the gas pump and approached the vehicle with two occupants in the vehicle. The report indicates that detectives had the driver and passenger exit and detectives observed two large bags of marijuana, one on the drivers seat and one on the passenger side floorboard. During a search, detectives said they located a digital scale.
Deputies took Mister Sekoy Castille, Jr., 18, and Kayn Jontae Deshotel, 17, both of Jennings into custody. Both were booked into the Jefferson Davis Parish Jail on charges of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
