Bossier Couple Arrested After Drugs Discovered in 5 of their Children

 A Bossier City couple is facing criminal charges after their children tested positive for cocaine and marijuana.

Shannon Michael Blake, 35, and Victoria Golmon Blake, were arrested Monday on multiple counts of cruelty to
juveniles following an investigation conducted by detectives with the Bossier City Police Department’s Juvenile Unit.

The investigation began after police were contacted in reference to alleged abuse involving one of the couple’s children.

Routine medical tests conducted as part of the investigation found the couple’s five children, ranging in ages from 6 months to 10 years old, tested positive for illegal drugs.

It’s believed the children were exposed to the drugs due to their parents’ use.

The couple was booked into the Bossier City Jail. Shannon Blake has since been transferred to the Bossier Parish Maximum Security Facility while Victoria Blake is waiting to be transferred to the same facility.
