ZACHARY - Thursday evening, following a three month investigation, the Delta Narcotics Task Force searched the homes of two neighbors in the 4000 block of Avenue G in Zachary.

Officers found marijuana, cocaine, money and a pistol in the homes of Tyrus Johnson, 25, and Roger Hill, 53.

Officers were called back to one of the homes in reference to a burglary in progress. Lacrisha McKenzie and Mary Johnson were caught stealing pills and a television from the home of Roger Hill.

"One was the wife of the suspect, the other was the daughter of his wife," explained Detective Enoch Sims.

All four subjects were booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish prison.

The Delta Narcotics Task Force is a multi-agency task force led by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office that was formed in 1990. The Task Force acts as a forerunner in fighting the war on drugs.

From Jan.-Sept. 2012, the task force arrested 240 people and recovered almost 120 lbs. of marijuana.

"We look for illegal narcotic activity and try to apprehend those suspects," said Sims.
