St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Anslum reported the arrest of a Baldwin man on multiple drug charges.

Deputies working on Lockley Street in Baldwin smelled the odor of marijuana coming from a residence. Deputies observed a bag of marijuana inside a car parked outside of the residence. A deputy spoke with Colbert and learned that the marijuana belonged to him. Deputies developed information that more drugs were inside the residence and obtained a search warrant. While conducting the warrant search, deputies found bags of marijuana, Xanax pills, a baby bottle with promethazine inside, empty bottles of promethazine, and a digital scale. The residence is within 2,000 feet of a church. Colbert was transported to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office for booking. No bail is set.
