Springhill Police arrest man on racketeering charges

By Bonnie Culverhouse

A north Webster Parish man surrendered to Springhill Police Monday on an active distribution warrant but was charged with much more.

DeMarcus D. Brown, 32, of Legion Dr., Springhill, was arrested on distribution of Sch. I synthetic Marijuana, possession of synthetic Marijuana with intent to distribute and racketeering.

According to reports, narcotics agents obtained another warrant for possession with intent to distribute after Brown admitted he had approximately 2 ounces of synthetic Marijuana at his residence.

Agents reportedly obtained a racketeering warrant on Brown after learning of his previous felony convictions of illegal narcotics. He was booked on the warrants and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center without incident.
