Two Texas men and an Alexandria man were arrested Wednesday on drug charges after search warrants were executed at two houses in Alexandria, according to Sheriff Charles F. Wagner.

Armed with search warrants, authorities searched homes at 1718 Beech St., and 1926 Huffman St., after receiving complaints of suspected marijuana sales at the homes. After an investigation, narcotics agents determined the two houses were allegedly linked together.

Agents searched the Beech Street home first and arrested Ernest Griffin, 45, of Alexandria, and Levay Duncan, 36, of  Houston. As agents entered the house, Griffin and Duncan were allegedly breaking “bulk packages” of marijuana down into smaller quantities to sell on the streets. Authorities seized a little more than two pounds of marijuana located at the home.

Meanwhile, other agents searched the Huffman Street residence and allegedly found Damion Dishon Sargent, 33, 2300 with a little more than a pound of marijuana.

Authorities suspect Duncan and Sargent were bringing the marijuana from Texas to sell in Alexandria.
