SPRINGFIELD, LA (NBC33) — A 69-year-old man was arrested for allegedly dealing drugs out of his home in Springfield, La.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that a search warrant was executed at the home of Hollis Firmin, Jr. on Monday, Oct. 22. The warrant was issued after several undercover narcotics officers allegedly bough roxycodone from him.
Officials tell NBC33 News that no drugs were found in the home. However, during the search officers seized a sawed-off shotgun, which was not legal due to its length. They also recovered a stolen shotgun.
Firmin was arrested and booked for three counts of Distribution of Schedule II CDS and Possession of an Illegal Firearm.
