MONROE -- The Ouachita Parish Sheriff's office makes an arrest on an accused cocaine dealer.

On March 6, a deputy with S.C.A.T. observed a truck sitting in an abandoned parking lot on Renwick and Rogers in Monroe.

Deputies had received an anonymous complaint about someone selling crack cocaine out of the truck.

According to the arrest report, the arrestee, 35-year old Kevin Mason of Monroe, seemed very nervous and would not look the deputy in the eye when answering questions.

The report says the deputy advised Mason of his Miranda rights. Mason told the deputy that there was nothing illegal inside his vehicle.

The report says during a consented search, a cellophane bag containing 11 rocks of crack cocaine was found in between the driver and passenger seat. The deputy stated the bag was in reach of all occupants in the vehicle.

The report says there was also over $1,200 in cash found on the driver. The money was all in denominations of amounts consistent with the sale of street level narcotics.

Mason was arrested and booked into OCC for possession of cocaine, bond set at $15,000.
