Drug investigation lands two in jail

Two St. Martinville men are in jail on drugs charges.

Sheriff's deputies say they began an investigation into 35-year-old Christopher Filer and 56-year-old Ernie Filer after receiving complaints from neighbors about drug activity in a trailer park off Russo Milazzo Road.

Deputies arrested both men Friday afternoon. Investigators say they recovered amphetamines, hydrocodone, synthetic marijuana, and a stolen handgun.

Christopher Filer faces three drug possession counts, one count of possession of a stolen handgun, and two counts of having a firearm in the presence of controlled dangerous substances.

Ernie Filer faces one count of drug possession and one count of resisting an officer.
