LA: EBRSO seizes 1,000 lethal doses of fentanyl, several guns

The following is a press release from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office:

Utilizing state funding recently appropriated by Senator Mack “Bodi” White, District 6, to combat Fentanyl trafficking in the parish, EBRSO Narcotics agents along with participating partners conducted an investigation into the drug-trafficking activities of Damond Williams and Kadarrine Williams. The investigation resulted in multiple arrests and the seizure of approximately $45,000 worth of Fentanyl/Heroin and 14 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,” Senator 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.”

“I am pleased that our officers were able to be a part of the collaborative effort to get this poisonous drug off the streets of our community,” Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran said. “I am committed to continuing these efforts with the EBR Sheriff’s Office to keep our city safe.”
