Authorities executing a no-knock raid on a Youngsville home just before dawn on Wednesday found what they suspect to be 23 opioid pills, 1.6 grams of meth, two meth pipes and a "large quantity" of plastic baggies, according to arrest affidavits for the two people booked in the operation.

Kim Gallet, 60, and Leslie Meaux, 45, were arrested after a SWAT team raided the home in the 400 block of Gallet Road.

Police say in the affidavit that Gallet admitted to selling drugs from the home and that Meaux admitted to having two opioid pills without a prescription.

According to the affidavits, the street value of the meth found totaled an estimated $320, and the street value of the pills found totaled an estimated $250.

A third person detained during the raid was not booked, according to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, whose SWAT team led the raid.

Once the SWAT team secured the property, they turned the scene over to the Lafayette Metro Narcotics Task Force. The task force is a joint effort between the Sheriff's Office and Lafayette Police Department.

Authorities searching the home also found what they called a "military projectile" and called in the State Police bomb squad, who found that the item was not live ammunition.
