Suspected Drug Dealer Trapped By His Own Burglar Bars
Burglar bars are supposed to keep people out of your house, but narcotics agents say the bars kept one drug dealer inside his.
Agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Task Force say when they went to search Brandon Small's house in the 2500 block of DeVaughn Street Wednesday evening, he tried to escape out a back window, but couldn't because of the locked bars.
"He did throw some dope through the bars into his neighbor's yard," said Lt. Carl Townley.
Investigators say they found nearly 200 grams of marijuana and a gun inside Small's house.
"This is a pretty well-known drug house," said Lt. Townley.
Small was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on a host of drug-related charges.
Authorities say complaints from citizens sparked the investigation.
Townley says Citizen complaints are also what led to the arrest of Ebay McClain.
McClain was arrested a few hours earlier inside a home in the 5600 block of Ellison. Agents say they seized 300 grams of marijuana inside his house. That's nearly a pound of pot.
Narcotics agents say these arrests are proof every complaint is taken very seriously.
"If it wasn't for concerned citizens, we wouldn't be able to get as much illegal drugs off the streets," said Lt. Townley.
