Bossier City police have arrested a woman and three others after the woman’s 3-year-old son brought illegal drugs to the Head Start center he attends.
Officers were called to the Hooter Park Head Start Center in the 1500 block of Hooter Park Drive at approximately 9:30 yesterday morning after the boy pulled a plastic bag containing marijuana out of his pocket and showed it to a teacher shortly after arriving.

As a result of the investigation, Flournoy was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of Xanax with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, child desertion, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, and possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
