Drug bust in Doyline

Deputies find meth, steroids

A Doyline man is behind bars after Webster Parish Sheriff’s Deputies discovered drugs in his home during the execution of active warrants Thursday.

Robert L. Thomas Jr., 53, of Greentree Road, was arrested on four different drug-related charges, following search of his home.

WPSO Deputies John Lewis and Marshall Merritt made contact with Thomas concerning active warrants for Contempt of Court and Obstruction of Justice, a report at the time of Thomas’ arrest said.

Deputies asked for consent to search the home. “Deputy Merritt and I located a mirror with a razor blade and white powder residue on it, suspected to be meth,” the report said.

A spoon with suspected meth residue, and a small clear baggie containing a crystal-like substance, also suspected to be meth, was found next to the mirror.

As the search continued, deputies found a small blue bag containing three bottles of suspected steroids, one used syringe, and several alcohol pads.

Deputies also found a glass smoking device commonly used to smoke marijuana, and a small amount of a green, leafy substance.

Thomas admitted ownership of the steroids, but denied possession of the other items found, the report said.

A separate syringe was found in another room, but Thomas denied possession of this as well, stating he believed his son, Cameron Thomas, left it there. According to the report, Cameron also has several warrants though WPSO.

Robert was mirandized and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. In addition to the two active warrants, he was charged with Possession of a Schedule 1 Controlled Dangerous Substance, Possession of a Schedule 2 Controlled Dangerous Substance, Possession of a Schedule 3 Controlled Dangerous Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
