Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says two Plain Dealing men were arrested Monday night after they were found to have active arrest warrants and drug paraphernalia when they asked a Bossier Sheriff’s deputy for a ride home.
Paul E. Anderson, 46, and Lee A. Manning, 58, approached the deputy’s patrol unit at Highway 3 and Highway 2 in Plain Dealing at 10:30 p.m. asking for a ride. The deputy found out both men had active warrants for distribution of drugs. After searching Anderson, the deputy found a crack smoking device in his shoe, and he admitted to smoking crack out of the pipe earlier in the day.
Anderson and Manning were arrested for distribution of a controlled dangerous substance, and Anderson faces additional charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both men were booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility. Anderson’s bond is set at $35,500. Manning’s bond is $35,000.
