A Church Point woman has pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges in two Acadiana parishes.

According to the U.S. Attorney's office, 41-year-old Courtney Daigle pleaded guilty in federal court to possession and distribution of  more than 500 grams of methamphetamine and 5 kilograms of cocaine.

Daigle was arrested after federal agents located the large loot of drugs, a firearm and other contraband at her Church Point home on Feb. 3, 2017.

Agents recovered a huge stash of drugs and contraband that included:

  • A Smith and Wesson SD9VE 9 mm handgun

  • 10 milliliter vial of testosterone cypionate
  • 10 milliliter vial of testosterone enanthate
  • $5,000 in cash

they say she was distributing throughout Lafayette and Acadia Parishes.
