Police K-9 Alerts on Hidden Drugs
Last night, at approximately 9:30PM, the Thibodaux Police Department’s Narcotics Division along with members of the patrol division executed a search warrant at 410 Back Street, the residence of Donald Coxen (58 Y/O, B/M). Also assisting was fellow K-9 Officer, Cisco. As Cisco searched the residence, he alerted onto the odor of illegal narcotics and paraphernalia in several different places within the residence.
Checking the areas that Cisco alerted on, 34.7 grams of Marijuana was found hidden under a chair, while 21.4 grams of Crack Cocaine and 18.8 grams of Powder Cocaine were found hidden in a bathroom closet. Also located inside the residence were three scales and numerous clear, plastic baggies. While the scales are known to be used to weigh the illegal narcotics, the baggies are known to be used to package the illegal narcotics for distribution. The estimated street value of all the illegal narcotics seized, totaled $4219.00.
