Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says narcotics agents Capts. Dan Weaver and Marvin Garrett worked in conjunction with Webster Parish Sheriff’s narcotics agents Deputies Bobby Igo III, Joel Thomas and Shawn Baker, Louisiana State Police narcotics agents and the U.S. Marshal’s Service.

Minden Police arrested Antario Demond Hawk, 29, of the 600 block of Cherry Street, on three warrants for one count each of distribution of a schedule I controlled dangerous substance (synthetic marijuana). Bond was set at $150,000.

The sheriff’s office arrested Antonio Demond Hawk, 32, of the 500 block of Bayou Avenue, on three warrants for one count each of distribution of a schedule I CS (synthetic marijuana).

“Yesterday (Wednesday) warrants were obtained for the brothers’ arrest,” Cropper said. “The sheriff’s office and the Minden Police Department, accompanied by state police and the task force, got together to arrest these brothers.”

He says while each agency was looking for their suspect, Minden Police spotted Antonio Hawk in which the sheriff’s office had a warrant, and the sheriff’s office spotted Antario Hawk in which Minden Police had a warrant.

“We arrested Antonio Hawk, and the sheriff’s office arrested Antario Hawk,” he said. “Once we got them all up here, we turned them over to where they were supposed to be, and we transferred custody.”

Antario Hawk was arrested around 10:30 a.m. on Shreveport Road, Cropper said. Narcotics agents also seized a 2010 Cadillac Escalade and a 1995 Honda Accord. Antonio Hawk was arrested around the same time without incident. His vehicle was seized as well, Igo said.

“We had three warrants on Antonio Hawk for distribution through an ongoing investigation where we’d made several undercover buys from him,” Igo said.

Once the brothers were booked, they were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
