ARABI, LA (WVUE) -- -

Two Arabi men face multiple drug and gun charges after they were allegedly caught red-handed on their own video-surveillance system.

Treyson Thedy, 25, and Kevin Schmidt, 18, were arrested on June 4 after agents served a warrant in the 6500 block of Chartres Street. The home was owned by Thedy.

Officials say they found $5,000 worth of marijuana, nearly $3,000 in Xanax pills and guns with illegally obliterated serial numbers at the residence.

According to the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office, the two suspects observed officers arriving at the house on their surveillance system and tried to hide evidence of illegal activity as well as themselves. Sheriffs say that Schmidt ran out a back door and hid under the raised house while Thedy opened the door and threw out a large bag containing marijuana.

Officers say that the home's surveillance system recorded all of the activity.

Both Thedy and Schmidt were booked with possession with intent to distribute both marijuana and Xanax, cultivation of marijuana, possession of a firearm in combination with a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Thedy's bond was initially set at $50,000 but was reduced to $25,000 on Tuesday by state District Judge Kirk Vaughn. No bond information was available for Schmidt.
