Guidry shipped 14 pounds of marijuana from an individual in California to an address in Iota, Louisiana. Law enforcement agents observed Guidry leave the residence with the box containing the marijuana on January 26, 2016. They also observed the box in the back of a truck as he left the residence. In a second incident, Guidry asked someone on November 16, 2016 to travel with him to the Houston, Texas, area to obtain 2 kilograms of cocaine. The other individual was returning to Louisiana two days later in Guidry’s truck when law enforcement agents stopped the vehicle. They searched the truck and found nearly 2 kilograms of cocaine. Guidry pleaded guilty to federal charges on November 30, 2018 to one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and one count of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine.

The FBI, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Louisiana State Police, Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office and Calcasieu Parish Combined Anti-Drug Team conducted the investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney John Luke Walker is prosecuting the case.
