West Monroe police arrested three people Wednesday afternoon accused of causing a disturbance and drug possession.
Daniel Duran, 19, Tonya Duran, 48, and Taylor Talbert, 19, all of 4985 Louisiana 552, Downsville, were booked into Ouachita Correctional Center. Daniel was booked on charges of illegal carrying of weapons, simple possession of marijuana, disturbing the peace and trespassing, while Tonya and Talbert were each booked on charges of simple possession of marijuana, disturbing the peace and trespassing.
According to arrest affidavits, police were called to Walmart in reference to an armed person refusing to leave the store. When police arrived, they spoke to a manager, who said he asked Daniel Duran, who walked into the store armed, to leave because the employees and customers were frightened of him.
The reports stated the Durans and Talbert became angry and started shouting profanities at the manager after he asked them to leave.
After police arrived, they stopped the three when they tried to leave. Daniel Duran told police he was an "adult" and could carry a firearm anywhere he wanted. He claimed his father gave him the weapon.
Police said the three had the smell of suspected marijuana on them.
During a search of their vehicle, police found a loose suspected marijuana in the vehicle's glove compartment.
Bonds were $1,150 each.
