Crowley Police Recover Marijuana After Suspect Crashes Car
Narcotics and patrol officers from Crowley Police teamed up last night to make arrests for illegal drugs.
In their first arrest yesterday evening, police stopped a driver on Western Avenue, and they saw the man drop something on the ground.
Chief K.P. Gibson says his officers recovered crack, and they arrested 48-year-old Carlos Hubbard for possession of crack cocaine.
Officers were trying to stop 28-year-old Jeremy Williams, but he drove away, hitting someone's front porch, and then he fled on foot.
Gibson says they set a perimeter in the area, and used K-9 "Karo" to track Williams to an abandoned house.
"With the suspect fleeing several blocks to an abandon residence, our K-9 came in handy. He and his handler did the job that they train for on a daily basis."
Williams was charged with:
- Possession with intent to distribute marijuana
- Criminal damage to property
- Aggravated flight
- Monies derived from drug proceeds
