DESOTO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - One person remains in jail as a result of a drug investigation in DeSoto Parish.

Sheriff's deputies say 39-year-old Joey M. Comoza, of Mansfield, was arrested after narcotics agents found him in possession of an ounce of black tar heroin and an ounce of crystal methamphetamine.

A search of a residence also turned up a large amount of drug paraphernalia commonly used in the consumption of narcotics, authorities said.

The street value of the drugs was estimated to be about $2,700.

Deputies say Comoza later admitted to both using and selling the drugs.

He is being held in the Desoto Parish Detention Center, where he was booked on 1 count each of possession of heroin with the intent to distribute and possession of a Schedule II Controlled Dangerous Substance with the intent to distribute.

The arrest prompted DeSoto Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle to stress how dangerous heroin, especially black tar heroin, is to consume.
