Vernon Parish officials have announced the arrests of three individuals on drug charges.

According to a news release from Sheriff Sam Craft, the arrests came after a joint investigation by the Vernon Parish Narcotics Task Force, the Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Agency and the Louisiana State Police.

Arrested were Brenda M. White, 58, of Leesville; Marenda Smith, 29, of Haughton; and Deshun McNeely, 33, also of Haughton.

All three have been arrested and charged with multiple counts of manufacturing and distribution of schedule II CDS and conspiracy to distribute schedule II CDS.

Authorities said the investigation was launched after allegations that White, Smith and McNeely were illegally distributing narcotics.

According to the release, during the investigation, approximately three ounces of cocaine, one ounce of methamphetamine, $49,000 in cash, and several vehicles were seized. During the investigation, agents reportedly learned that the three were operating in several locations in Vernon and other parishes.

According to the VPSO, White, Smith, and McNeely were arrested on May 7 in Bossier Parish, and they are currently incarcerated in the Bossier Parish Jail.

No bond has been set at this time, and other charges are pending.
