Dallas man arrested on drug and weapons charges on Pearl Street

by Minden Press-Herald

A Dallas man was arrested on Pearl Street in Minden on March 23, following a routine traffic stop that escalated into a significant drug and weapons bust. De’Audrick Gill, 23, was taken into custody after officers discovered a cache of illegal substances and firearms in his possession.

The incident began when an officer patrolling the area of East Union Street near Main Street observed a black Chrysler 200 failing to properly change lanes after turning left onto Main Street. The officer initiated a traffic stop and, as he approached the vehicle, the passenger was seen attempting to reach for something. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed a small plastic bag of marijuana in the passenger’s possession.

Gill, the driver, was instructed to exit the vehicle and was found to be in possession of more drugs. Gill claimed all responsibility for the contents of the vehicle. He admitted to having additional marijuana, Xanax, Promethazine, and two firearms under his driver’s seat. A search of the vehicle uncovered a significant quantity of marijuana individually packaged for distribution, two bottles of Promethazine with Codeine, two bottles of Xanax, a scale, a Taurus G3 9mm, and a Smith and Wesson SD9 9mm.

Gill was charged with possession of schedule I (marijuana) with intent to distribute, possession of schedule II (Xanax) with intent to distribute, possession of schedule V (Promethazine) with intent to distribute, illegal possession of a firearm near a controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, improper lane change, and two bench warrants.

All evidence was collected and turned into the property room. Gill was taken into custody without incident.
