When an individual is accused of a drug-related crime, a series of events is set into place immediately.

Some of the jingles that the police come up with these days to tag their drug roundups sound like rock song titles or maybe wrestle-mania themes. Recently, a Louisiana drug net coined the name "Throwback -- Takedown" for a sweep in Opelousas that netted 18 arrests, mostly on drug charges. They started the raid dramatically by using a battering ram at 5:30 a.m. to break down the door to their first target.
