Vermilion Parish authorities arrested six people for drug related offenses due to undercover operations conducted within the parish.

The Vermilion Parish Municipal Narcotics Task Force is seeing a large trend of synthetic marijuana use and distribution. Authorities say those using or selling the drug are warned that this drug falls under the same criminal code as marijuana, and therefore has the same penalties

The following were arrested:

Kerry Moore of Abbeville, arrested for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, and conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute marijuana.

Shawn Petry of Abbeville, arrested for possession of a prescription drug without a prescription, and aggravated flight from an officer.

Dion Greene of Abbeville, arrested for felony possession of synthetic marijuana.

Shermin Pourmehr of Kaplan, arrested for possession of synthetic marijuana

Jamie Wooten of Kaplan, arrested for possession of synthetic marijuana.
