Acadiana police briefs for March 22, 2014

Crowley police officers late Thursday discovered illegal drugs worth thousands of dollars being held in the home of a man who tried to flee after police entered his home with a search warrant, officials said.

Steven Mayfield, 32, 1027 William Egan Ave., Crowley, ran away but was captured immediately and without a fight Thursday, Chief K.P. Gibson said in an emailed release.

Mayfield’s arrest came after a three-month investigation.

“The officers on scene did a good job of securing the residence and apprehending a fleeing suspect, thus preserving evidence and recovering illegal narcotics intended for the streets of Crowley,” Gibson said.

Gibson said officers found 10 pounds of marijuana worth $16,000. They also found 9 grams of cocaine, 11 hydrocodone pills and 73 alprazolam pills, worth a total of $1,500.

They also recovered a .40-caliber Glock handgun with an obliterated serial number, $2,500 in cash, a 2005 Ford F-250 and a 2004 Honda ATV. Detectives believe the goods were purchased through illegal drug sales, Gibson said.

Mayfield was booked on one count each of possession with the intent of distributing marijuana, cocaine, alprazolam and hydrocodone. Also, he was booked on suspicion of possession of controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a juvenile and possessing a weapon with an obliterated serial number.

He is being held in the Acadia Parish Jail.
