Two Minden men were cuffed following a search of a house that yielded several grams of suspected cocaine and more in suspected marijuana.
Boss F. Walker Jr., 34, of the 700 block of Sibley Road, was arrested Saturday, April 18, and charged with possession with intent to distribute Schedule I CDS (marijuana) and possession with intent to distribute Schedule II CDS (crack cocaine). Bond was set at $30,000.
Courtland Jerel Hill, 29, of the 100 block of Rebecca Road, was arrested Saturday, April 18, and charged with conspiracy to distribute Schedule I CDS (marijuana) and conspiracy to distribute Schedule II CDS (crack cocaine). Bond was set at $33,500.
“We’d gotten an anonymous call indicating there were some people on the front porch of this residence on Sibley Road,” Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said. “Officers made contact with these two guys on the front porch and in plain view, they observed a partially smoked rolled cigar with what they believed was marijuana laying on the porch.”
At that point, officers placed Walker and Hill under arrest, Cropper says. The officers asked for consent to search the residence, and it was given, the chief says.
“Once inside the residence, they located nine rocks of what field-tested to be positive for crack cocaine, 31 grams of marijuana and a set of digital scales,” he said.
The two were transported to the Minden Police station, booked and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
