by Minden Press-Herald





A Probation and Parole assistance call ended in the arrest of four



people, three for drug charges and the other for possession of drug paraphernalia.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper says they were contacted Thursday morning by Probation and Parole asking for assistance to search the residence of 41-year-old Charles “Chucky” Williams, of the 700 block of Clay Street in reference to some complaints they’d received.

He said they made contact with Williams and located inside the residence Douglas “DW” Cloud, 30, of the 300 block of Myrick Street in Jamestown, Elizabeth A. Havard, 31, of the 100 block of Carroll Street in Shreveport, and Bobby Young, 33, of the 400 block of Middle Road.

“They were all escorted to the front of the house, and during the search, a plastic bag that contained a small amount of methamphetamine was located in the room that Cloud and Havard were staying,” he said.

Cropper says a large amount of what appeared to be drug paraphernalia was also located inside the same room, a pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine was located in the bathroom where Young was located upon their arrival. A straw that appeared to be used for snorting methamphetamine was located inside Williams’ wallet, along with one in the bathroom, according to the police report.

“Havard and Cloud admitted to using methamphetamine along with Williams,” Cropper said.

Young reportedly admitted to handling the pipe located in the bathroom.

Cloud, Havard and Williams were all charged with possession of schedule II controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine) and possession of drug paraphernalia. A probation and parole hold was also placed on Williams.

Young was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Cloud, Havard and Williams were transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. Young bonded out, the chief said.
