Narcotics operation led to arrest
Minden Police arrested a Minden man for distribution of drugs Monday afternoon, according to a press release from Chief of Police Steve Cropper.
“At approximately 12;48 p.m., Lt. Tokia Whiting was on routine patrol when she observed a suspect near a residence on Marion Street,” the release said. “Whiting had first-hand knowledge that this suspect had outstanding distribution warrants.”
Whiting made contact with Malcolm Jones, 24, of Durwood Street. She advised him of his Miranda rights and placed him under arrest.
“Capt. Marvin Garrett and Capt.Danny Weaver arrived to assist Whiting,” the release said. “Officer Tina Douglas also assisted in the arrest.”
Jones was transported to the Minden Police Department for processing. He was booked on four outstanding warrants, stemming from an undercover narcotics operation by the Minden Police Department Narcotic Division.
“Three of the warrants were for distribution of a CDS schedule I (synthetic marijuana), and the fourth was for distribution of a CDS schedule I (synthetic marijuana) in a school drug free zone,” the release said.
Jones was transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center and is being held under a $155,000 bond.
