JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) -

The owner of a nutrition store in Jennings was arrested Tuesday on multiple drug charges, authorities said.

Jennings Deputy Chief Danny Semmes said Shannon Guillory, owner of Rival Nutrition, is facing two counts of distribution of a counterfeit controlled dangerous substance and one count of distribution of an anabolic steroids.

Semmes said detectives with the Jennings Police Department conducted a six-month undercover investigation where detectives carried out controlled buys and purchases of the illegally made substances.

Judge Steve Gunnell issued an arrest warrant for Guillory, of Lake Arthur, this week.

After Guillory's arrest on Tuesday, detectives carried out a subsequent search warrant of the store and found a number of bags containing a white powder, which is believed to be what Guillory was using to package his own vitamins.

Semmes said those bags of unknown substances are being looked at by the Calcasieu Parish Crime Lab.

Semmes said the Federal Drug Administration may get involved, depending on what comes of the crime lab's determination of the substances and if they were used to illegally make vitamins.

    A few showers possible this afternoonA few showers possible this afternoon

    For today, we will have a few small pop up showers in the afternoon. Rain chances are at only 20%, so not everyone will see rain. Any rain we do get, will not last long. There will be plenty of passing clouds, but that won’t stop the heat. Highs today will be in the low 90s, with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s! Even though fall is officially starting today, it certainly will not feel like it! By tonight, we will keep the rain chances low as all showers come to an end.
