Police say they've put a Caddo Parish man accused of selling marijuana out of business.

According to a joint announcement released Wednesday afternoon, agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit acting on information gathered during an ongoing investigation into the illegal distribution of high-grade marijuana executed a search warrant Tuesday at Cross Lake Nail and Spa in the 5700 block of South Lakeshore Drive.

During the execution of the search warrant at the business, officers arrested the 35-year-old owner, Phat Tang.

The search of the business led agents to Tang's home in the 3000 block of Gorton Road, where police say they ultimately confiscated $4,300 in cash, about 1,485 grams of suspected marijuana and two handguns. Police say the drugs have a street value of $15,000.

Agents charged Tang with one count of possession with intent to distribute a Schedule 1 narcotic and booked him into the Caddo Correctional Center.
