Brusly police arrest man accused of selling sex pills laced with fentanyl, cocaine

BRUSLY- The Brusly Police Department busted a man attempting to sell sex pills laced with cocaine and fentanyl two weeks ago.

Police arrested David Webber, 68, and charged him with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of schedule II with intent to distribute.

Officials say Webber was at Atheno’s Greek & Lebanese Cafe in Brusly offering pills to people patronizing the restaurant.

Brusly Assistant Chief Tom Southon was eating dinner with family at the restaurant and Webber mistakenly offered Southon the pills as well.

“There are lot girls who work there who are my daughter’s age, and they know me,” Southon said. “They told me, ‘Mr. Tom, this guy’s acting really weird.’ I went to talk to him, and he had a strong odor of marijuana. Through our conversation, he tried to sell me some sex pills. It was six pills for $100.”

Southon called an officer to the restaurant who was nearby to help search Webber, using the marijuana scent as probable cause.

After searching Webber’s vehicle, law enforcement found 5,000 packaged pills and another 800 grams of marijuana, two grinders, and $7,000 cash.

Southon says Webber is from Nevada. He was traveling from Mexico and stopped in Brusly on his way to Key Largo, Florida.

Brusly Police Chief Jonathan Lefeaux says Webber was wanted by the FBI, and the drugs had a street value of $1.2 million.

“We are blessed to have a department that works together as a great team and can come together to solve such a huge case like this,” Lefeaux said.
