APSO: Pair caught with numerous narcotics, guns
GONZALES - Authorities accused two people of selling narcotics out of their Ascension Parish home Wednesday.
Sheriff's deputies and members of the Gonzales Police Department arrested Timothy Sheehan, 48, and Melanie Diebold, 30, after a search of their Gonzales home.
Narcotics detectives said they'd received reliable information that illegal drugs were being sold at the home on East Asphodel Street. After Wednesday's search, detectives said they found a number of different pills, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, testosterone, drug paraphernalia, and numerous firearms in the home with Sheehan and Diebold.
