A Shreveport man is now behind bars following a joint investigation into illegal drug activity.
Back on August 30, 2013, agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit executed a narcotics search warrant at a home in the 400 block of East 71st Street in Shreveport. Authorities were led to the residence following an ongoing investigation into alleged drug activity occurring at the home.
During the execution of the warrant, agents seized approximately 52.9 pounds of marijuana, with an estimated street value of $236,992.00. Agents also seized a semi automatic rifle, a shotgun and a handgun. $2,558.00 in cash was also seized during the warrant execution. Arrested during the ongoing inquiry was 33 year old Allariet Howard of Shreveport, who now faces charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance. Howard was subsequently booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.
