Lamar Jermaine Weeden of Parks and Willie Alfred of Jeanerette are behind bars once again after the known drug dealers were allegedly at it again in St. Mary Parish.

In a press release and video (which you can watch below), Sheriff Blaise Smith announced the pair have been leading the Weeden Drug Trafficking Organization, distributing drugs throughout the parish even though federal law enforcement has been taking action. Sheriff Smith says his Narcotics detectives began an investigation in 2018, identifying more than 30 subjects as being part of the organization, which has extended beyond St. Mary Parish. So far, in addition to Weeden and Alfred's arrests on April 19 of this year, six other people have been placed behind bars on warrants for racketeering activity and conspiracy to commit racketeering activity as Louisiana State Police and other local law enforcement agencies have come together to stop the spread of illegal drugs in the area. And more arrests are expected.

· 125 g. Heroin
