EBRSO gets 1,000 doses of Fentanyl, guns off the street

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office and several other agencies helped to seize 1,000 doses of Fentanyl and 14 guns to get fentanyl off the streets.

Thanks to state funding recently appropriated by District 6 Sen. Mack “Bodi” White to combat fentanyl trafficking in the parish, EBRSO narcotics agents investigated and arrested Damond and Kadarrine Williams. Law enforcement seized $45,000 worth of fentanyl/heroin along with the guns.

“I’m proud of the hard work by our narcotics division and all those that assisted in this investigation that resulted in removing deadly drugs, criminals and weapons off our community streets,” EBR Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said. “These types of investigations are a big step at making the parish safer. I’m so appreciative for the funding allocated by Senator White allowing us to dedicate more resources to go after these high-level traffickers who play a prominent role in violent crimes in our area.”

“This is a highly-lethal drug that is killing people in East Baton Rouge Parish at an alarming rate,” White said. “I have heard of too many families broken due to the deadly impact of this drug on our community streets. I felt like it was imperative that we dedicate the funds needed to our local law enforcement in order to combat this epidemic. I am pleased to see that it is quickly yielding results that will save lives.”

The two-month investigation resulted in search warrants for locations on S. Choctaw Dr. (Major Motors LLC), Oakmount Drive, Magnolia Square Drive (Central, La) and Grace Lane.

On Sept. 21, EBRSO narcotics agents with the assistance of EBRSO SWAT, SCAT, K-9, Uniform Patrol, Intel, Zachary PD CID and Central PD executed all four search warrants.
