BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A recent drug investigation ended with the arrest of a Baton Rouge father and son.

An investigation by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office in October and November of this year led to the arrest of Travis Day Sr., 41, and Travis Day, Jr., 22, both of Baton Rouge. Agents conducted two controlled purchases of crack cocaine from the father, according to EBRSO.

The sheriff’s office said agents got a video of the father making suspected drug deals around underaged individuals. Arrest warrants were obtained for the father and son along with search warrants for two homes.

A search of the 41-year-old Baton Rouge man uncovered .5 ounces of marijuana after a traffic stop. Deputies found suspected synthetic marijuana, marijuana cigars and a Girsan 9mm during a search of his truck.

The 22-year-old son was arrested after he was found by deputies at one of the homes belonging to his father.

These items were seized during that search:

  • 61 dosage units of alprazolam

Marijuana totaling 3.6 ounces was also located in the 22-year-old’s vehicle.

These items were found during a search of the second home.

When questioned, the father said “all of his guns were legal and all the marijuana located in the residence was his,” according to EBRSO.

The son was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Wednesday, Nov. 15 and charged with illegal carry weapons with drugs, possession with intent to distribute schedule II and possession with intent to distribute schedule I.
