A Minden couple who went to Dallas to party and brought back narcotics has been arrested by Webster Parish Sheriff's deputies.
Keddrick (Ked) Kennon, 38, of the 100 block of Camp Street has been charged with one count of possession of CDS Sch. II (powder cocaine), possession of CDS Sch. III (Lortab) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Diane Deshun Calloway, 28, of the 3000 block of Dorcheat Road was arrested on warrants for two counts of distribution of CDS Sch. II. She has also been charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute CDS Sch. II (powder cocaine), one count of possession of CDS Sch. III (Lortab) and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton said deputies Bobby Igo III and Joel Thomas, Lt. Scott Tucker, Sgt. Tommy Kemp and Capt. Robert Hayden executed a search warrant at Calloway's residence.
"They located two bags of suspected powder cocaine, a set of scales with residue and a baggie of pills identified as Lortab," Sexton said.
According to reports, when Calloway and Kennon were read their Miranda rights, they disavowed knowledge of the illegal narcotics.
"It was not until Calloway and Kennon were placed in the living room together that Calloway stated the narcotics were hers," Sexton said. "That was after several comments from Kennon where he said he better not get charged with the narcotics."
Sexton said deputies felt Calloway may have felt forced into claiming the narcotics, so they separated the couple.
"Calloway then told them that she and Kennon went to Dallas to attend a party and she picked up the cocaine," Sexton said. "She stated that she and Kennon then drove back to Minden."
Kennon reportedly told a different story.
"He said he had no knowledge and rode with someone else," Sexton said. "He also denied knowledge of the two baggies – approximately baseball size – sitting in plain view in the bathroom, approximately five feet from Kennon's location when deputies entered the house."
