Crowley Police Department makes arrests
CROWLEY – Crowley Police Department’s newest addition hit the streets of Crowley and has already been put to hard work. K-9 “Chopper” hit the streets with his new partner and worked with narcotics agents to make yet another big arrest in the war against narcotics.
“We recently retired our first K-9 under my administration, 'Remco' due to medical purposes. 'Chopper' and his handler just completed the four week training course and helped us establish probable cause for the search of a suspected vehicle used in drug activity,” stated Chief K.P. Gibson.
Agents stopped the vehicle as part of an on going investigation. Once “Chopper,” alerted on the vehicle, a search was then conducted. Agents recovered 132 ecstasy pills from the vehicle along with 4 oz. of marijuana.
Arrested were Anthony Meaux, 28, of Crowley; Charles Williams, 31, of Crowley; and Carlton Francis, 31, of Crowley.
All three-drug traffickers were booked into the Acadia Parish Jail for possession with the intent to distribute ecstasy and possession with the intent to distribute marijuana.
District Judge John Trahan has set bond at $60,000 on each man.
In another incident, narcotics agents armed with a search warrant have arrested three persons in the war against narcotics in the City of Crowley. The warrant was served Tuesday evening just before midnight.
“Our agents working the narcotics aspect obtained evidence and secured the search warrant for 403 ½ East Oak Street. Shortly before midnight on Tuesday evening, our SRT (Special Response Team) made entry on the residence and secured all persons within. The agents then completed their search and recovered Cocaine and Marijuana from within the residence,” stated Crowley Chief of Police K.P. Gibson.
The operation was a success for the fact that narcotics arrest were made and no person, officers or suspects being injured in the operation.
Arrested were Quinton Adams, 28, of Crowley for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana; Elmo Menard, 47, of Duson for possession of cocaine; and Gretel Jordan, 47, of Youngsville for possession of cocaine.
