Union Parish reports busy week of narcotics related arrests

Posted: Updated:

UNION PARISH, La., (KNOE 8 News) - This past week, Union Parish sheriff's narcotic agents had a busy week, arresting eight people involved three different cases.

The first case involved two methamphetamine arrests and the destruction of a meth lab. The investigation netted 4.5 grams of meth plus the destruction of the active lab, Sheriff Bob Buckley said Thursday.

Arrested were Brady Paul Sonier, 33, of 211 Willie Reeves Rd., Bernice, and Jerry A. Santiny Jr., 44, of Farmerville.

Sonier was booked Feb. 10 into the Union Parish Detention Center for possession of meth with intent to distribute, conspiracy to manufacture meth, creation and operation of a clandestine lab, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. His total bond was set at more than $43,000.

The sheriff's Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs later arrested Santiny and booked him for conspiracy to manufacture meth and distribution of meth. The lab was located at 238 Tiger Creek Rd. near Farmerville.

"This case is still under investigation and more arrests are expected," Buckley said.

The sheriff said Santiny was arrested for delivering pseudoephedrine for the operation of the lab for which he was rewarded with a $10 bag of marijuana.

"For a $10 bag of marijuana Santiny is now facing two felony counts simply for delivering an ingredient to manufacture meth," Buckley said.

BNDD agents also conducted an undercover purchase, all of which was recorded, of a half-pound of marijuana. Arrested at the scene of the purchase were Christopher A. Dixon, 26, of 800 Dawkins #14, Farmerville, and Robert Eugene Hector, 43, of 2495 Hwy. 348, Farmerville. Both were charged with distribution of marijuana and conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Four people were arrested by agents Thursday for possession of meth after agents executed a search warrant at 111 Donna Drive near Farmerville.

Those arrested were Charles L. Chrisman, 54, Loretta Ann Chrisman, 54, Joseph Robert Burton, 38, all of 111 Donna Drive, Farmerville, and Serena Marie Theodus, 47, of 107 Dub Road, Ruston. All were charged with possession of meth. Charles Crisman was additionally charged with possession of meth with intent to distribute.

Agents executed the warrant because Charles Crisman was wanted by the Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office for simple burglary, Buckley said.
