On March 24, at around 6:30 pm, APD officers conducted a drug investigation in the area of Applewhite Street and 12th Street, in response to complaints of drug activity. Officers arrived on scene and began investigating several subjects in two parked vehicles at that location. A K-9 officer assisted with the investigation, during which multiple containers of suspected cocaine were found, as well as cash and a handgun. The handgun was later determined to have been reported stolen through Woodworth PD.
Four subjects were arrested and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center. Willie Byrd, 50, of Alexandria, was charged with Possession of a Stolen Firearm, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Leroy Hammond, 61, Robert Hicks, 51, and Michael Smith, 49, all of Alexandria, were each charged with Possession of CDS II.
