Denham Springs woman remains jailed after drug bust

A Denham Springs woman remained in the Livingston Parish Detention Center on Wednesday in lieu of $800,000 bail after a drug bust in the Magnolia Estates area netted about 1,300 doses of prescription pills said to be worth some $24,000.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office had received numerous complaints about Kim Brunty, 45, allegedly selling prescription drugs and storing stolen property at her home at 30966 White Leaf Drive, spokeswoman Lori Steele said in a news release Wednesday.

Narcotics detectives made several undercover buys of oxycodone from Brunty, and executed search and arrest warrants at her home on Oct. 8, Steele said.

In addition to the pills, Steele said, detectives found numerous firearms and stolen property during the search, and arrested Brunty on the following: four counts of possession of Schedule II controlled dangerous substances, one count of possession of a Schedule III controlled dangerous substance, three counts of possession of a Schedule IV controlled dangerous substance, illegal possession of stolen things and illegal carrying of a weapon.

Detectives also arrested, at the same address, Trevor David, 19, on one count of possession of a Schedule I controlled dangerous substance and Christopher Jones, 35, on one count of illegal possession of stolen things, Steele said. Steele said David and Jones lived at the same address as Brunty.

David bonded out of the jail Oct. 9 on $1,030 bail, a booking deputy said. Jones bonded out Oct. 10 on $7,530 bail.
