DENHAM SPRINGS - Police said they found tens of thousands of dollars worth of marijuana and arrested one person in a drug raid Friday morning in Denham Springs.

Narcotics agents charged Darrel Donahue with drug possession with the intent to distribute, drug and firearm possession, being a felon in possession of a firearm and cruelty to animals.

Police said they identified Donahue's home on Plymouth Street as a possible site for marijuana sales. Early Friday morning narcotics agents raided the home and said they found nearly six pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $38,000.
