Ten Arrested in Undercover Drug Sting at Louisiana Body Shop

$19,000 worth of drugs was seized, along with several weapons and over $8,000 in cash.

Nearly a dozen people face a variety of drug charges after a month-long, undercover narcotics sting shut down operations at a Shreveport, La., body shop, reported The Shreveport Times.

Just after 4:30 p.m. on April 23, 2015, agents with the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics task force, along with federal agents from the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force, carried out a search warrant at the 2 Fresh Customs body shop located in the 3200 block of West 70th Street. During the investigation, authorities obtained more warrants served at Shreveport homes located in the 600 block of West 77th Street, the 600 block of West 66th Street and a residence in Bossier City Louisiana on Minden Street.

In all, agents seized 120 Hydrocodone tablets with a street value of over $1,200. Nearly 620 grams of high-grade marijuana ($15,462.50), 131.35 ounces of Codeine Syrup ($800), 120 Ecstasy tablets ($1,200), and 3 grams of cocaine ($300) were also taken during the operation. A stolen Glock 9mm pistol, Glock .40 caliber pistol, along with a Ruger .380 caliber pistol were among the weapons seized in the operation. Agents seized $8,131 in cash and took 10 suspects into police custody. Following their arrests, all persons were booked into the Caddo Parish Correctional Center.
