Deputies went to two homes for two different reasons and found something at each they didn’t expect.

They found a Long Beach woman and a Saucier man wanted on unrelated felony drug warrants, Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

Deputies arrested Danielle Chanda Fayard, 42, of Long Beach on Monday on a charge of prescription forgery. They were looking for a fugitive at her home in the 18000 block of Tillman Road and realized she also was wanted, Peterson said.

Fayard was booked at the county jail and released on a $25,000 bond.

Deputies arrested Edward Arnold Holmes, 58, on Tuesday after responding to a domestic complaint at a home in the 24200 block of Old Highway 49. Holmes was wanted on three counts of sale of oxycodone.

A check of Holmes’ ID led to the discovery of his warrants, Peterson said.

Holmes’ charges allege he sold oxycodone twice in June and once earlier this month, the jail docket shows.

Justice Court Judge Melvin Ray set Holmes’ bonds at a total of $150,000.

Holmes remained in custody Wednesday.
