An alleged trafficker was arrested by the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office following a two year investigation, officials said.
According to Capt. Megan Vizena with the sheriff's office, Michael Cain of Opelousas allegedly trafficked narcotics from Texas to Louisiana and into St. Landry Parish.
"Our narcotic investigators conducted several undercover purchases and numerous hours of video surveillance," Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said.
Guidroz said Cain transported cocaine, ecstasy, and 300 pounds of marijuana into the parish in vehicles equipped with hidden compartments.
"The street value of just the marijuana alone was worth $135,000," Guidroz added.
Vizena said Cain was arrested and booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana, distribution of crack cocaine, distribution of ecstasy, transactions involving proceeds from drug sales, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of uniform CDS Law in a drug free zone.
