In the early morning hours of August 14, 2010 the Opelousas Police Department's Crime Suppression Team closed down another drug dealers business.
Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow said the CST Team had been watching a residence in the 800 block of
St.Cyr Street for a few weeks and gathered enough information to get a search warrant issued for the house.
Officers waited to execute the warrant at around 3:00A.M. on Saturday morning. The CST Team executed the search warrant and arrested two brothers, who allegedly were selling marijuana and crack cocaine from their residence at
809 St. Cyr St
Officers located approximately 2lbs of marijuana, and approximately a 1/2oz. of crack cocaine in the residence, as well as $4100.00 in cash, two weapons and a stolen flat screen television.
Also during the investigation CST officers determined that Mr. Ledayrick Ferguson had a 16 year old female present in the home with him, and that he had allegedly engaged in inappropriate sexual intercourse with the minor female. Mr. Ledayrick Ferguson was booked on a number of narcotics charges and carnal knowledge of a juvenile. Mr. Kellup Ferguson was booked on several narcotics charges. The Opelousas Police Dept and the Crime Suppression Team pledge to keep fighting illegal drug trafficking in the City of Opelousas, and this is an example of how our Department is working 24/7 to keep our city and its citizens safe.
I would like to express thanks to the citizens of Opelousas who provide valuable narcotics information, that make these arrest possible. I want the citizens to rest assured that the police department is constantly conducting and continuing its war on illegal drug activity. As always I would like to request that any citizen with information regarding any crime contact the
Opelousas Police Department at (337) 948-2500, firstname.lastname@example.org, or the C.S.T. at (337) 948-5232 all calls will be kept anonymous. See attached files for booking information.
Contact Chief Perry Gallow to obtain additional information.
