Crowley Narcotics Division raids local residence
CROWLEY – Members of the Crowley police Department Narcotics Division along with Special Response Team (SRT) officers, raided a residence in the 900 block of North Ave A just after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
Agents secured a search warrant on the residence after an extensive investigation into illegal drug activity. “The search Warrant was a success” stated Chief of Police K.P. Gibson.
SRT members are used by the department to make tactical entries into residence due to the high risk of injury or attack during the serving of a warrant. “ Our goal is to plan out the safest operation possible for our officers and those present at any residence we go to. I want every officer to go home to their families when the job is done and our SRT efforts & training have been extremely successful with accomplishing this goal” stated Chief Gibson.
Agents searched the North Avenue A residence and recovered 5 “cookies” of crack cocaine. “A cookie is a name for the shape of crack cocaine after it is cooked, meaning the shape is like a waffer or a ‘cookie’,” stated Chief Gibson. Agents also recovered currency which officers confiscated as monies derived from drug proceeds. The street value of the drugs recovered is estimated at several thousand dollars.
Arrested for possession with the intent to distribute crack cocaine and monies derived from drug proceeds was Brandal Moore of Crowley.
No bond has been set as Moore has violated his previous conditions of probation and a hold has been placed on him by agents with Probation & Parole.
