Narcotics task force charges 2 Louisiana men

Two Louisiana men in two separate incidents are facing serious drug charges after being arrested by the same drug task force. Reportedly, the Vermilion Municipal Narcotics Task Force was responsible for both arrests. In the first arrest, a 57-year-old man from Maurice was taken to jail after a routine traffic stop for speeding took a turn for the worse. Police claim the man tossed crack cocaine out of his car window before he stopped for the police. A local news report did not provide a description of the amount of crack cocaine supposedly seized by authorities. The drug charges the man now faces include possession of crack cocaine. His bond was set at $5,000.The second man, from Kaplan, has been charged with several drug offenses after allegedly selling drugs to an undercover police officer. No details were divulged as to the investigation surrounding the purported sale of drugs or the type of drugs seized. Authorities only said that an undercover operation led to charges of two counts of distribution of a Schedule V narcotic, one count of distribution of a Schedule IV and one count of a Schedule III narcotic. This man's bond is set at $160,000.
