LPSO seizes 2,000 fentanyl-laced pills, arrests two

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested two people after seizing 2,000 fentanyl-laced pills in Denham Springs.

LPSO narcotics agents received information about the possible distribution of fentanyl-laced pills. Agents secured a search warrant for a home on Fred Banks drive. Authorities arrested Joseph Collins, 19, and Montana Seals, 47.

We hope that more of you will continue coming forward with information so that our Narcotics Agents can investigate & hopefully remove more from our streets.’
