PAINCOURTVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrests of Anthony Loston, 27, 16200 Kuykendahl Road, Houston Texas and Samantha R. Jones, 38, of 506 9th Street, Franklin, LA, on drug law violations following a complaint of suspicious persons at a local business.

Deputies responded to the complaint and learned that there were suspicious individuals inside the business asking people for money.

Deputies located both individuals and questioned them concerning the purpose of being at the location. The female provided false and misleading information as to her identity.
