Deputies charge man with having drugs around kid
PRAIRIEVILLE - Sheriff's deputies arrested an Ascension Parish man after investigators said they found drugs in his home around his 12-year-old daughter, and a package full of marijuana which had recently been delivered to his house.
Deputies arrested 36-year-old Jeremy Munnerlyn on Wednesday after they said he admitted he had drugs at his home, but denied having the package of drugs shipped to his house.
Investigators said they got a tip the package full of illegal narcotics had been delivered to a Prairieville home. Narcotics agents drove out to the home and saw the package sitting outside the house, then waited until Munnerlyn drove up. Deputies said he told them he was the homeowner, but had not idea drugs had been delivered to his home.
Narcotics agents said Munnerlyn did admit he had some marijuana in his house, so deputies got a search warrant. Investigators said they found the package had about 11 pounds of marijuana as well as 24 vials of hash oil. Detectives who went inside Munnerly's home also found his 12-year-old daughter inside, along with more marijuana, clonazepam, and drug paraphernalia.
Deputies contacted the girl's mother, who did not live at the home, to come get her daughter and arrested Munnerlyn.
Investigators booked Munnerlyn on charges of drug possession with intent to distribute, as well as drug possession around a juvenile. Deputies said he posted a $100,344 bond Thursday and was released from jail.
