SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Three men are behind bars after Shreveport police raided a hotel room Thursday afternoon and found pounds of marijuana and hash, and dozens of vials of hashish oil.

"This is the result of about a three week investigation on some narcotics traffickers," said Lt. Jerry O'glee with the Shreveport Caddo Narcotics Unit.

Police said information from an ongoing investigation led them to the hotel, in the 4900 block of Monkhouse Drive, search warrant in hand. There, they found about six pounds of high-grade marijuana, two pounds of hash and 10 ounces of hashish oil.

"Just because they're legalizing it in other places, we're going to still keep our foot down on it, it's illegal, don't bring it here, we don't want it," Shreveport Police Chief, Willie Shaw said of the marijuana.

The hash, which is a concentrated form of THC from marijuana is not a common drug agents see on Shreveport streets. One of the suspects is from California, and agents point to that area of the country as a point of origin for the drug.

Officers also seized a handgun, a pickup truck and about $20,000 during their arrests, which were made after a brief foot chase and vehicle chase, and two truck stops.

Arrested were Zackery Summage, 25 of the 100 block of W. 75th Street, Skyler Dean, 24 of the 300 block of Ocean Street in Santa Cruz, CA, and Leslie Rhodes, 24 of the 800 block of Sewanee Place in Shreveport, police said.

All three are being held at the Shreveport City Jail.

Summage is charged with two counts of possession of a schedule I narcotic with intent to distribute; one count of illegal carrying of firearms with controlled dangerous substances; and one count of aggravated flight from officers.

Dean is charged with two counts of possession of a schedule I narcotic with intent to distribute and one count of illegal carrying of firearms with controlled dangerous substances.

Rhodes is charged with one count of possession of a schedule I narcotic with intent to distribute.
