Five suspects arrested after officers observe suspicious vehicle
On October 15th, 2017 at approximately 9:00pm officers with the Lafayette Police Department observed a suspicious vehicle in the 1900 block of Everett Street. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, however the driver failed to yield. Officers did not pursue the vehicle due to safety concerns. The vehicle was located a short time later in the 1200 block of Morton St. The two occupants fled on foot from the vehicle and were apprehended after a short foot pursuit.
The two occupants were identified as Zaron Staples (18), and Dannielle Duncan-Sanders (24). When the two were taken into custody officers located methamphetamine, marijuana, syringes, and two handguns. One of the handguns had previously been reported as stolen.
The investigation led back to a residence in the 1900 block of Everett St. Outside of the residence police arrested two suspects, Richard Dixon (59) for possession of methamphetamine, and Lindsay Ragan (31) for possession of a syringe and for two outstanding warrants.
Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence and located methamphetamine, marijuana, synthetic marijuana, syringes, and paraphernalia. Police arrested Kelly Hudelson (50) who lives at the residence, for numerous drug related charges as a result of the search warrant.
