Westlake drug bust

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Police say, they watched Jacob Collet for a month before they executed a drug raid in Westlake on Wednesday. Now, he is jailed and charged with felony narcotic and steroid possession.

"The search warrant was very successful. The C.A.T. team received tips of this activity going on in his residents. He was arrested and booked in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on those charges,"says Commander James McGee with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office. 

Commander McGee said, despite what many might think, the use of steroids is a big problem.

"Some people view steroids as not being a drug. Steroids are a drug and they are illegal. It is a felony charge for possession of steroids," said Commander James McGee. 

Westlake police chief, Jeremy Cryer says, let this be a lesson to anyone who thinks about doing drugs.


"If you are going to do drugs, and you are going to do them in Calcasieu Parish, or Westlake, or anywhere else in the area, you may want to be thinking because there are always people watching. It is just something that we take very seriously.

And, if convicted on all counts, Collet could face up to 5 years in prison.
