Northside drug bust
Yesterday afternoon, members of the LRPS Special Operations Unit and the Tactical Team searched a home in the 1300 block of 23 Street North. They found drug paraphernalia, cell phones and several weapons including machetes, swords and a .22 caliber starter pistol.
Police arrested two men during a traffic stop downtown later in the day. Arrested during the stop were the 24-year-old occupant of the searched home, Chance Bodan Nordean, and an 18-year old man, who was later released without charges. Nordean had in his possession a small quantity of crack cocaine and an undisclosed amount of cash. He was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime, failing to comply with a recognizance and failing to comply with probation, and is scheduled to appear in court today.
