CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Three Lake Charles residents were indicted this week in a drug case investigated by the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force.

Xavier L. Johnwell, 19; Edmond Jevonte Thorne, 19; and Kimberly A. Zeno, 21; were arrested in January following a drug bust.

All three were indicted on conspiracy to commit armed robbery (two counts) and conspiracy to possession CDS 1 with the intent to distribute.

Additionally, Thorne and Johnwell were indicted on illegal possession of a weapon.

Authorities said on Dec. 28, detectives were contacted by Johnwell by accident.

Authorities said Johnwell said he dialed the wrong number and was looking for his "weed man."

Johnwell asked detectives if they knew where he could get marijuana, according to authorities.

Detectives said they arranged a meeting with Johnwell at Brentwood Park on Illinois Street in Lake Charles to make the narcotics transaction.

Authorities said Johnwell, Thorne and Zeno met them there. The three were arrested and booked without incident.

"During a search for officer safety, detectives located a 380 semi-automatic pistol in the waistband of Johnwell and a .38 revolver in the rear of the car under the passenger seat in direct reach of Thorne," a news release states.
