A Downsville man was arrested last week after narcotics officers spotted him in front of a Ruston tavern.
Terrel V. Andrews, 31, was spotted by members of the Lincoln Parish Narcotics Enforcement Team (LPNET) about 9:30 p.m. last Wednesday night. The team held several warrants for Andrews for distribution of Schedule II controlled substances.
Andrews was taken into custody without incident in downtown Ruston. During the arrest, Andrews stated he had cocaine in his pants pocket.
Andrews was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, violation of the Controlled Substances Law-Drug Free Zone for being in proximity to a church, and the three LPNET warrants.
Bail was set at $168,500.
