Fentanyl-laced meth, heroin seized in drug raid, one arrested

BATON ROUGE — One man was arrested after a drug raid where East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputies say they seized fentanyl-laced meth, heroin, psilocybin mushrooms and a gun.

Walter Dent, 44, was arrested and faces nine drug-related charges including distribution of schedule II narcotics, possession with the intent to distribute schedule II narcotics and illegal carrying of a firearm by a convicted felon, deputies said.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office narcotics say they received information from West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office about alleged methamphetamine trafficking involving Dent in December.

They began investigating, and deputies say they were able to conduct a controlled meth buy from Dent.

Deputies say that drug deal led them to “two pertinent locations.” On February 16, agents say they arrested Dent and executed two search warrants. One warrant was executed on Arlingford Ave. and the other on Annette St.

EBRSO says this arrest and bust was made possible by the Fentanyl overtime funding provided by the state and senator Bodi White.
