NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Following an overdose death in Lafourche Parish, officials have arrested the man they believe sold the victim heroin, Sheriff Craig Webre says.

Webre says an undientified person overdosed on June 8 in Bayou Blue on Mary Beth Avenue. At the scene, investigators found a syringe and a plastic bag of suspected heroin.

Investigators were able to determine the drugs had been purchased from 39-year-old Christopher Sealy.

Sealy was booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex on three drug charges. His bond was set at $176,000.

Additional charges may be filed, Webre says.
