RED RIVER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Red River Parish Sheriff's Deputies arrested 3 Coushatta residents Wednesday on numerous felony drug charges, the office announced Thursday.

Deputies say they seized a small quantity of ecstasy, more than 100 grams of cocaine, and 21 bags of marijuana packaged for resale. They also seized $996 in cash and a 2003 Cadillac STS.

The felony arrests and seized property come after a four-month investigation that led to authorities executing a search warrant Wednesday at the home of one of those arrested.

Arrested without incident were Terrance D. Kennedy, 36, of the 1000 block of East Carroll St., Shonatana Lumbon, 34, of the 1000 block of East Carroll St., and Jimmy Williams, 43, of the 1200 block of Nevelda St.

Deputies say children were present Kennedy's residence when they arrested the trio.

Kennedy was booked on 13 counts: 3 counts of Distribution of schedule II crack cocaine, 3 counts of Distribution of schedule II crack cocaine within 1000 feet of a school zone, 1 count of Distribution of schedule II crack cocaine in the presence of a minor, 1 count of Possession of schedule II crack cocaine over 28 grams with intent to distribute, 1 count of Possession of a CDS in a school zone, 1 count of Possession of a CDS in the presence of a minor, 1 count of Possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, 1 count of Possession of drug paraphernalia, and 1 count of Possession of schedule I MDMA ecstasy.

Lumbon was charged with 6 counts: 1 count of Possession of schedule II crack cocaine over 28 grams with intent to distribute, 1 count of Possession of a CDS in a school zone, 1 count of Possession of a CDS in the presence of a minor, 1 count of Possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, 1 count of Possession of drug paraphernalia, and 1 count of Possession of schedule I MDMA ecstasy.

Williams also was charged with 6 counts: 1 count of Possession of schedule II crack cocaine over 28 grams with intent to distribute, 1 count of Possession of a CDS in a school zone, 1 count of Possession of a CDS in the presence of a minor, 1 count of Possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, 1 count of Possession of drug paraphernalia, and 1 count of Possession of schedule I MDMA ecstasy. 
 
During the arrest Red River deputies were joined by the DeSoto Parish SWAT Team, DeSoto Parish canine unit, and the Tri-Parish Drug Task Force. Deputies say Red River High and Red River Jr. High were placed on temporary lock down as a precautionary measure because of the close proximity of the target residence to the schools.
