LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Four Texas residents are accused of drug charges following an undercover operation involving the Combined Anti-Drug Task (CAT) Force Team.

Authorities said on Sunday, the team arrested 44-year-old Bouasay Norkeo, 39-year-old Tony Chounlamany, 36-year-old Khammy Norkeo, and 38-year-old Jenny Nivone, who are all facing drug charges.

Authorities said 53 pounds of high grade marijuana was recovered in the operation.

Authorities said detectives from the CAT Team received information that Bouasay Norkeo was meeting with a subject at a convenience store.

    To start off our week, we will have another hot and sunny day. There will be a few clouds that build up this afternoon, but the rain chances are slim to none. Temperatures will once again be very hot. Highs will reach the mid 90s. Some area north of I-10 could reach the upper 90s. Heat indices will also be in the triple digits. A heat advisory will likely be issued. If you are planning on spending time outdoors, I recommend taking caution in the heat.
