Three Ferriday men were arrested and charged with possession of drugs and carrying a weapon after Ferriday officers responded to a call on Friday of men gambling in the Montgomery Square parking lot on La. Hwy. 15.

According to Ferriday Police Officer Sam King, when officers arrived at the scene they asked suspects to go back inside their apartments.

"They went to two different apartments." King said. "At that time, officers found a bag under one of the vehicles the men had left behind. Inside the bag were marijuana, scales and ID cards.

"In the process of contacting those subjects, officers saw in plain view inside a vehicle marijuana and a pistol on the driver's side," King said.

Arrested were:

Byron Greer, 21, 27393 La. 15, Ferriday, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of schedule I with intent while carrying a weapon and possession of controlled and dangerous substance;

Jaqurrius R. Green, 21, 508 Martin Luther King, Ferriday, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of schedule I with intent while carrying a weapon and possession of controlled and dangerous substance;

Carlos M. Collins, 20, 27393 La. 15, Ferriday, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The men were booked into the Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office jail.
