Two more drug dealers from the Springhill area are off the streets, thanks to efforts by the North Webster Drug Task Force.
Curtis Dale (Buddy) Young, 52, of Third Street in Springhill has been charged with distribution of CDS Sch. II (Methamphetamine) and Dennis L. Pickard Jr., 55, of Seventh Street in Springhill was arrested for distribution of CDS Sch. III (Lortab).
Springhill Narcotics Officer Ronald Wedgeworth, Webster Parish Sheriff's Lt. Shawn Baker and Springhill patrol officers Bryan Montgomery, William Frazier and Keith Pace made the arrests.
According to Baker, Young was arrested on Main Street in Springhill.
"It was another one of our undercover buys," Baker said. "We had an active distribution warrant on him. Officer Pace made the traffic stop, and he was placed under arrest."
Baker said Pickard was picked up at his residence.
"We also had an active distribution warrant on him," Baker said.
Both men were taken to Springhill Police Department where they were booked and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center. Pickard is being held on $25,000 bond and Young is being held on $100,000 bond.
