LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - NewsChannel 11 has learned the names of the five people arrested in a drug bust in South Central Lubbock on Thursday.
Richard Tamlin, 24, Marcell McDade, 40, Billy Ray Westbrook, 24, Sergio Dewayne Kelly, 22, and Bobby Dewayne Jones, 32, are charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana, and other charges.
Police served a search warrant around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday at an apartment in the 1800 block of 66th Street, near Lowrey Field. The police also found crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia, and money in the apartment.
Lt. Roy Bassett with the Lubbock Police Department says no area in the city is totally immune to drugs. "This is what we could call a street level deal. From what we can tell appears on a regular basis that they've got walkup traffic and that's what we need people to be watching for," adds Lt. Bassett.
Lt. Bassett says if there are a lot of people coming to a house for two to three minutes that's what you need to keep an eye out for. On average LPD serves three to six warrants or even more a week.
