Tip leads to four drug, riot arrests

WALKER — A Walker man wanted since September on drug distribution warrants was found with the help of a Crime Stoppers tip and arrested Monday, along with three of his relatives accused of attempting to incite a riot, the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

When deputies tried to arrest David Carter, 27, 12550 Dunn St., while he was seated in a vehicle, Carter got out and started running away, Sheriff Jason Ard said in a news release Wednesday.

Deputies caught up to Carter, who allegedly resisted arrest and was found to have four Hydrocodone pills and two Roxycodone pills on his person without a valid prescription, Ard said.

After Carter’s arrest, several of his family members and friends allegedly began to incite a riot, the sheriff said.

Those arrested and the counts on which they were booked, according to the Sheriff’s Office, are:

David Carter, outstanding warrants for distribution of Schedule II controlled dangerous substances (crack cocaine), failure to appear for possession with the intent to distribute Schedule II drugs and failure to appear for possession of Schedule II drugs; resisting an officer; possession of Schedule II drugs (Hydrocodone); possession of Schedule II drugs (Roxycodone).

Alexis Carter, 17, 13550 Dunn St., Walker, inciting to riot and aggravated assault on a police officer.

Jeremy Carter, 22, 13550 Dunn St., Walker, inciting to riot and resisting an officer.

Kevin Carter, 18, 13550 Dunn St., Walker, inciting to riot.

Alexis, Jeremy and Kevin Carter posted bail and were released from the Livingston Parish Detention Center, Ard said.

David Carter remained in the Livingston Parish Detention Center because a hold was placed on him for failure to appear, Ard said.
