CROWLEY, LA (KPLC) -

A Crowley man has been arrested on numerous narcotics charges, following a 3-month investigation by the Crowley Police Department.

On Thursday, narcotics agents with Crowley Police served a search warrant for 32-year-old Steven Mayfield at a residence in the 1000 block of Willian Egan Ave. in Crowley.

"As officers breached the residence, the suspect involved in the investigation fled the scene on foot. However, (he) was immediately apprehended by officers without incident," said Police Chief K.P. Gibson in a news release.

During a search of the residence, officers discovered 10 pounds of Marijuana with an estimated street value of $16,000. They also located 9 grams of Cocaine, 11 Hydrocodone pills and 73 Alprazolam pills, with an estimated street value of $1,500.

Aside from the drugs, officers recovered a .40 caliber Glock handgun with an obliterated serial number, over $2,500, and three vehicles that investigators believe were purchased using monies from drug proceeds.

Paperwork for the seizing of evidence has been filed with the 15th Judicial District Court.

Mayfield was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute cocaine, possession with intent to distribute alprazolam, possession with intent to distribute hydrocodone, monies derived from drug proceeds, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a juvenile and obliterated serial number.

Mayfield was booked into the Acadia Parish Jail.
