Two Vinton residents are facing drug charges, according to a news release from the Louisiana State Police.

Troopers said as a result of an undercover investigation conducted by State Police, on Tuesday, agents with the State Police Bureau of Investigations, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office and the Vinton Police Department arrested 32-year-old Terrence Budwine for distribution of a schedule II controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine) at his residence.

Budwine was also wanted for violation of his probation, troopers said.

Troopers said at the time of the arrest, Budwine was in possession of a small quantity of Xanax. He was also charged with possession of a schedule IV controlled dangerous substance (Xanax) and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in a drug free zone (near a school).
