Police arrest one, seize drugs and guns in search
BAKER - Police arrested one person and seized guns and drugs during an early-morning search today in Baker.
Police Chief Mike Knaps said investigators arrested Calvin Stewman at a residence on Greenwood Lane in suspicion of marijuana possession and having drugs and guns.
Knaps said agents served a search warrant at the home just before 5 a.m. Friday, and noticed a strong marijuana smell inside. He said Stewman told them and found individually-wrapped bags of marijuana, four rifles, two shotguns and two handguns in Stewman's room.
Knaps said Stewman told narcotics detectives he started selling marijuana and hydrocodone pills to supplement his income a few months ago.
Police booked Stewman into the East Baton Rouge Parish jail.
