Police Bust Man Selling Fentanyl and Meth Out of His Pineville, Louisiana Home
PINEVILLE, La. (KPEL News) - A Rapides Parish man has learned that selling meth and fentanyl out of his home is not a great idea.
John David Dorsey, 36, of Pineville, Louisiana, has been arrested after Rapides Area Drug Enforcement (RADE) agents investigated multiple complaints about his illicit activities, and determined that he was committing multiple crimes out of his residence on Radio Road in Pineville.
According to the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office, the RADE officers were watching Dorsey and his residence for signs that he was indeed selling drugs out of there. At one point, Dorsey left the residence in a vehicle, and a traffic stop revealed drugs in his possession. Feeling they had enough information to go on, they obtained a warrant to search the home.
During the search, they found "an additional 11 grams of suspected Fentanyl, 1.1 ounces of suspected methamphetamine, 1.1 ounces of marijuana, 36 grams of a pill/powder mixture suspected to be pressed Fentanyl pills and powder, 12 suspected pressed Fentanyl pills, 13 suspected Xanax bars and a firearm with an obliterated serial number was located," according to the RPSO.
