JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) - Two Jennings men have been arrested on drug charges, following the execution of a search warrant by the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office.

Detectives with the JDPSO served the warrant on Wednesday at a residence on 5th St. in Roanoke, La. While searching the residence, detectives located a cell phone, which displayed a message asking if any "hyro" (marijuana) was needed.

Investigators used the phone to arrange the purchase of .25 ounces of marijuana for $150 from the person who sent the text. The suspect agreed to meet at the gas station located at 303 East Interstate Drive in Jennings.

Detectives waited in unmarked units at the gas station before the suspect's arrival. The suspect sent a text message to authorities to meet at a gas pump. Detectives observed one vehicle with two occupants parked at a gas pump and approached them.

Investigators observed two large bags of marijuana inside the car -- one on the driver's seat and one on the passenger side floorboard. During a search of the vehicle, a digital scale was also located.Both occupants of the vehicle were arrested and booked into the Jefferson Davis Parish Jail on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Arrested were 18-year-old Mister Sekoy Castille Jr. and 17-year-old Kayn Jontae Deshotel, both of Jennings.

The investigation continues, and authorities say additional arrests are pending.
