NCHS: LOCK-DOWN; DRUGS; K-9 SEARCH – April 5, 2022

Agents from the Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force, K9’s from the Louisiana State Police and DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office were requested to Natchitoches Central High School on April 5 by school administrators in reference to multiple complaints of illicit narcotics usage by students on the school premises in the last few months according to the Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force.

During the operation, law enforcement officials arrested 5 (3- juvenile & 2- adults) students and seized over 50 grams of high grade marijuana, paraphernalia, and a THC edible.

Despite certain social media posts; no firearms were located.

The operation was a cooperative agreement between Natchitoches Parish law enforcement agencies and the Natchitoches Parish School Board to make sure that students, teachers, and other staff members remain safe during the school year.

NPSB Superintendent Grant Eloi added, “Student safety is NPSBs highest responsibility. Today the Natchitoches Parish sheriffs office helped us maintain a safe and drug free environment at NCHS.

“Although there have been a myriad of rumors, only a small amount of contraband was found, which only involved a handful of individuals, none of which were NPSB employees,” said Eloi
