LPNET arrests six after search

Last week, LPNET agents executed a search warrant at 705 E. California Ave. Apt #5 and arrested six individuals. 

When agents entered the house, Aujwan Simmons, 21, of Ruston, was placed in handcuffs. Agents were in the process of securing the residence so it could be searched, and he continually tried to pull away from agents. He was told multiple times to calm down and sit down but refused. He had to be forcefully seated in a chair. Simmons then stood back up and continued to yell. He was then placed in the back seat of a patrol unit and transported to the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for booking. 

Upon securing the residence, two of the occupants who occupied the northwest bedroom were identified as Jacque P. Young, 29, of Arcadia, and Sumika N. Rhone, 40, of Ruston. Upon searching the residence, specifically that bedroom, the following items were found: 90 grams of methamphetamine, 58.2 grams of crack cocaine, digital scales and a Girsan 9mm pistol. Also in the residence was an infant belonging to another occupant of the residence. 

Agents also searched the northeast bedroom, which was occupied by Eric Brown Jr., 26, of Ruston, and Aujaney Simmons, 22, of Ruston. Brown had to be forcefully removed from the residence because he continually tried to pull away from agents after being placed in handcuffs. Brown continually yelled and was eventually placed into a marked control unit.

During a search of the northeast bedroom, agents located a clear plastic bag containing 165 grams of suspected marijuana, a green pill bottle containing an assortment of Oxycodone pills, an AK-47 rifle, a large amount of US money and packaging material. The infant was in this bedroom and was released to the custody of a family member. 

Autrevion M. Rhone, 20, of Ruston, was also in the residence during the search and had four outstanding warrants. He was arrested and transported to the detention center for booking.
