A Bogalusa man and woman were arrested on drug charges in the early hours of Tuesday morning, after officers from the Bogalusa Police Department and deputies from Washington Parish Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant on a room at the Choctaw Motel on South Columbia Street after receiving information about narcotic sales from that location, according to BPD Maj. Percy Knight.

“During the search of the motel room, officers located a tin container that contained 18 folded foil bundles of suspected heroin, two pieces of crack cocaine, cash and a digital scale, which is used for packaging and selling drugs,” said Knight, the public information officer for the BPD. “The occupants of the room were present at the time of the search and they were identified as Jesse Drummond, 50, and Gail Gorsuch, 48.”

Drummond and Gorsuch were arrested and both were booked on the following charges: possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a drug free zone, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
