BATON ROUGE - Members of the Baton Rouge Police BRAVE unit arrested a man Thursday afternoon after they said they caught him with several bags of marijuana.

Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said BRAVE officers arrested Aldric Angelo Byrd, 24, around 2 p.m. Thursday in the 400 block of Cloud Drive.

Investigators said they were looking into reports of drug activity near the Grand Oaks Apartments when they saw Byrd carrying a black trash bag. They said Byrd fled from officers but was caught after a short chase.

BRAVE officers said the bag had more than six pounds of marijuana and more than $1,000 in cash inside.

Officers booked Byrd into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail on resisting an officer and drug charges.
