Louisiana State Police made two drug arrests in Sulphur on Tuesday.

According to a news release from troopers, agents with the State Police Bureau of Investigations made the arrests at a Sulphur home.  

The arrests were reportedly the result of undercover narcotics investigations.

Arrested were 35-year-old Shyla Freeman, of Sulphur, and Daniel Drounette, 30, also of Sulphur.

Freeman was booked on charges of false representation of a schedule II controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine). Troopers said Freeman previously sold a substance to undercover agents claiming that it was methamphetamine. The substance was subsequently tested and determined not to be methamphetamine, troopers said.

Drounette was charged with distribution of a schedule II controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine) as well as possession of schedule III and schedule IV controlled dangerous substances.

Troopers said they previously purchased methamphetamine from Drounette and had an active arrest warrant for her. At the time of her arrest, Drounette was in possession of Hydrocodone pills and Flexeril tablets, troopers said.

Both women were booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.

Freeman's bond was set at $7,500.  

Bond for Drounette was set at $22,000.
