The search warrant and an arrest warrant for Calvin B. Stewman, 50, of 4607 Greenwood Lane, was executed about 4:55 a.m. on Feb. 22.
Officers obtained the warrants after an investigation revealed that Stewman had been selling drugs from his residence.
Upon entering the home, officers said the strong odor of raw marijuana was evident.
An initial search was conducted and four people were detained, including Stewman. He was then questioned about the presence of marijuana and firearms in the home, said Baker Police Chief Mike Knaps.
Stewman stated there was about an ounce of marijuana in the living room area concealed in a Crown Royal bag. He also told officers that there were several rifles and a revolver in his bedroom, Knaps said.
Detectives eventually located the Crown Royal bag filled with marijuana packed in 14 individual baggies.
A Revolver hand gun, a semi automatic firearm, two shotguns and four rifles were also located in Stewman’s bedroom, said Knaps.
Stewman was placed under arrest and transported to the Baker PD where he was interviewed by detectives. In the interview, he admitted to selling the marijuana and his prescription of hydrocodone pills to supplement his income, Knaps said.
Stewman also stated in the interview that he had been selling the illegal substances for only a few months.
Stewman was transported and booked at East Baton Rouge Parish Prison with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of firearms with drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana in the presence of a juvenile, said Knaps.
“After a thorough investigation, Baker Narcotics Officers have cleared our streets of illegal drugs and several firearms. We will continue to be very aggressive in our war on drugs and illegal weapons in the City of Baker!” said Chief Mike Knaps. “If you choose this path, we will meet you on it. I remain vigilant in my commitment to the citizens to keep Baker a very safe place to live and raise a family.”
