Narcotics agents executed several search warrants in south Lafourche yesterday, which resulted in 8 arrests.
Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre said that agents received information about L.J. Danos, 38, of Larose, possibly being in possession of a large amount of heroin.
With help from narcotics agents from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, LPSO agents located Danos at a camper on East Main Street in Cut Off, which was owned by Gary Robinson, 53, of Grand Isle.
Danos was there, as well as several other individuals, including Richard Baldwin, 40, of Galliano, and Charlene Blanchard, 33, of Grand Isle, who had active warrants.
Agents obtained search warrants and found more than 200 grams of heroin in Danos' possession. The street value of the heroin is approximately $20,000.
Inside the camper, authorities also located $3,200 in cash and a small amount of Suboxone, which was determined to belong to Robinson and Rebecca Hickox, 49, of Cut Off.
Agents also learned that Robinson was at a Larose motel, so they went to the hotel and located the suspect and also Kristin Williams, 35, of Galliano.
They were found to be in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
All six were arrested and taken to the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex.
The booking is as follows:
-Danos: Possession with Intent to Distribute Heroin, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Bail is set at $50,500.

Also on Wednesday, agents conducted a traffic stop just north of the Larose area on an SUV, and identified a convicted felon, Jerome Theriot, 50, of Larose, as the driver.
A K-9 deputy alerted authorities to the presence of narcotics inside the vehicle.
Agents discovered narcotics and a firearm inside the SUV. After investigation, agents obtained a search warrant for Theriot's residence on West 1st Street, and there, authorities located Jillien Jarvis, 39, of Golden Meadow, who had several active warrants.
They also discovered narcotics and drug paraphernalia on scene.
Theriot and Jarvis were both arrested and taken to the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex for bookings.
Theriot was charged with possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, as well as possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, illegal carrying of a weapon in the presence of a controlled dangerous substance and improper vehicle lighting.
Bail is set at $30,650.
Jarvis was booked on active warrants for a probation violation and three counts of contempt. She was also charged with possession of marijuana, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. She is being held without bail due to the probation violation.
