Search warrants reveal drugs at two Ruston locations

Three men are in custody on multiple drug charges after the Lincoln Parish Narcotics Enforcement Team executed two search warrants in Ruston Wednesday.

Nicholas D. Moore, 30, Ladarius D. Winzer, 41, and Miketavious Dice, 33, were present at a Larson Street residence when the search warrant was executed. An affidavit supporting the arrests by a Lincoln Parish deputy sheriff assigned to LPNET stated the house “was obviously the site of a large, organized illegal drug operation.”

Among the items seized were 1,046 grams of methamphetamine, 252 grams of marijuana, 37 grams of powdered cocaine, 14 dosage units of the amphetamine Adderall, six units of alprazolam, 10 ounces of promethazine syrup, multiple sets of digital scales, large quantities of packaging materials, and a vacuum sealer.

Much of the drugs was broken down and packaged for individual sale. The location is considered a drug-free zone due to the house’s proximity to a church and a school.

A second search warrant was executed at a Monterey Drive residence that Moore shares with another individual. During that search, two parcels were marijuana were found totaling 774 grams.

Each of the three men were booked for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine, Adderall, alprazolam, and promethazine; possession of drug paraphernalia; and violation of the Controlled Substances Law (drug-free zone).

Bail amounts were not available.
