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.

APSO Chief Tony Bacala said the arrests came as part of a joint narcotics investigation involving the sheriff's office and Gonzales Police.

The two were both accused of drug possession with intent to distribute, and received $40,344 bonds after being booked into the Ascension Parish Jail.
