GREENSBURG, La. (AP) — St. Helena Parish Sheriff Ronald "Gun" Ficklin arrested his brother in a weekend drug raid, his chief deputy said.

Ficklin led sheriff's narcotics agents and Greensburg police in a raid on the house Saturday, following a stakeout that lasted several days, Chief Deputy Nat Williams said Monday.

Among three arrested was Randy Ficklin, 48, of Greensburg, who was booked with possession of drug paraphernalia.

The investigation is continuing and more arrests are pending, Williams said.

The sheriff, meanwhile, is facing his own legal problems. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in February in a stolen car parts investigation involving inmates from the Parish Jail.

He has pleaded not guilty.

Sure he pleaded not guilty. Then he was likely told by his fellow officers that if he would help arrest his OWN BROTHER then they would cut him a deal. For the record...that is pure speculation on my part...but having seen how the drug war works....I'd say it is sound speculation.

Karma is a bitch and that is all I gotta say.
