ST. GABRIEL - Sheriff's deputies arrested an employee of the Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel after they said he tried to smuggle drugs into the jail.

Detectives got a warrant to search Toussant's home in Geismar, where they said they found a quantity of marijuana, synthetic cannabinoids, and a handgun.

Deputies booked Toussant into the Ascension Parish Jail Thursday. They said his bond has not been set.
