Evading Police Leads to Drug Bust in Shreveport
On Tuesday (7/13/21) members of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office Special Response Team along with the DEA Task Force executed a search warrant at 109 Southfield Drive. The agents and deputies were spotted pulling up to the residence, that's when the suspects fled the scene in a van. During the escape, a police vehicle was struck by the van along with a wooden fence.
A female passenger bailed out of the van during the escape and fled on foot. Agents and deputies continued following the van. The male driver, 38-year-old Jason Duncan, was arrested a short time later. Agents and deputies then returned to the apartment and conducted a search of the premises. During the search, agents were able to seize approximately one kilo of methamphetamine.
Duncan was charged with possession with intent to distribute over 400 grams of methamphetamine and booked into the Caddo Correctional Center. Charges against the female suspect are pending her release from the hospital.
In May, Duncan was arrested on drug charges after the Task Force and Caddo patrol deputies executed a search warrant and seized over 58 ounces of methamphetamine, approximately 61 grams of marijuana, and $30,000 in cash.
