LIVINGSTON — Investigations by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office narcotics division resulted in six arrests this week in three separate incidents, Lt. Andy Lowrie said Friday.
Deputies with the narcotics and patrol divisions went to Riley Village Thursday to investigate a location where occupants were reportedly selling narcotics.
When officers arrived on LaDena Street and identified several men standing outside the residence, one suspect attempted to flee but was immediately apprehended, Lowrie said.
Douglas Woodard was charged with evading arrest and also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
Deputies obtained a search warrant for the residence and arrested three additional suspects.
Daniel Gonzalez, Thomas Lewis Cheatham and Gerardo Rivera Jr. were arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), a second degree felony.
On Tuesday, Nov. 27 deputies served an arrest and search warrant at a residence on West Street in Livingston. The warrants resulted from an investigation into the distribution of crack cocaine by Henry Lee Thompson, AKA PeeWee.
Thompson was charged with two counts of delivery of a controlled substance in a drug free zone, a first degree felony.
Deputies from the narcotics division and special response team (SRT) and Corrigan Police Department executed a search warrant at a residence in Snow Hill Wednesday, Nov. 28, locating crack cocaine, marijuana and several pounds of copper.
Deputies arrested Jimmie Menefee Jr. for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and an outstanding warrant for delivery of a controlled substance. While in custody at the Polk County jail, two additional charges for delivery of a controlled substance were filed against him.
During the search of the Snow Hill residence, deputies took several phone calls from people wanting to purchase crack cocaine from the occupant.
Lisa Fryer of Corrigan arrived at the residence to make a purchase and was arrested by deputies for outstanding warrants.
Narcotics detectives and Pct. 1 Constable Charlie Clack also apprehended a Livingston man on a felony warrant for aggravated assault on Wednesday.
Michael Clinton Nettles, 50, attempted to flee from the scene but was apprehended after a short foot chase. Nettles also faces charges for possession of a controlled substance, evading arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The suspect is no relation to Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy James Michael Nettles, 44, who also serves on the Livingston I.S.D. Board of Trustees.
