LIVINGSTON - Deputies in Livingston Parish announced multiple drug arrests that took place this week and resulted in $8,500 worth of drugs seized.

On Monday, the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office arrested Deangelo Williams of Denham Springs after deputies learned he was selling drugs out of a motel room in the area.

According to Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard, deputies received information about the illegal activity at the Highland Inn Motel in Denham Springs.

Through investigation, a search warrant was obtained where deputies found three plastic bags of drugs, seven grams of heroin, 6 grams of crack cocaine and 3.75 grams of cocaine powder.

The street value of the drugs is estimated to be over $2,000, according to the sheriff's office.

The following day, Myles Franklin Lloyd and Charles Joseph Burns, both of Texas, were arrested after deputies were dispatched to Satsuma Road for a narcotics complaint. At the scene, investigators found illegal drugs in the home and a vehicle on the property.

In addition, Hazel Nicole Mancusi-Ungaro was issued a summons for possession of drug paraphanelia.
