SHREVEPORT, La. -- A Sabine Parish man who sold methamphetamine from his home will spend the next 12 years in a federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote sentenced Marvin Ray Loucious, 54, of Many Friday. Loucious pleaded guilty in February in possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Loucious was arrested after agents watched him sell 11 grams of methamphetamine on two different occasions in July 2018. In a raid on his home a month later, agents found 160 grams of methamphetamine, digital scales, plastic baggies and approximately 100 glass smoking pipes. Agents also recovered 55 firearms, some of which were near the meth.

The DEA and the Tri-Parish Drug Task Force (DeSoto, Sabine and Red River sheriff's offices) conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jessica D. Cassidy and Tiffany E. Fields prosecuted the case.
