On May 3 after 5 p.m., Sheriff Pohlmann said agents with the Special Investigations Division conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle with an expired Louisiana temporary tag speeding through Arabi near the intersection of Angela and N. Prieur streets.

During the traffic stop, agents noticed a strong aroma of marijuana emitting from inside the vehicle.

It also was determined Hornes has a prior conviction out of Florida for a controlled dangerous substance.

Hornes and Brown are both being held in St. Bernard Parish Prison on $100,000 bonds.
