BATON ROUGE - Narcotics agents arrested the owner of a Harding Blvd. tattoo parlor and seized an array of street narcotics during a raid of the man's business last night.

Agents searched the property owned by Rodney Johnson, 37, on the evening of July 31 after undercover detectives were able to purchase heroin from the man.

The search that followed turned up sizable stashes of crystal meth, marijuana, heroin and oxycodone along with digital scales and a semi-automatic pistol.

More than $60,000 in cash was seized by agents when they searched two vehicles on the property as part of the raid.

Detectives were also told by Johnson that he had marijuana and a second pistol at his house on Meadowdale Dr.

Johnson faces charges of possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, methamphetamine and heroin. He also faces charges for possession of marijuana, possession of firearms in the presence of controlled dangerous substances and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

He was booked into EBR Parish prison.
