While searching the room, detectives located 38 pieces or rocks of crack cocaine, cocaine, marijuana, over 6 dozen Xanax pills, other types of pills, and cash (US currency). The money is suspected to be derived from illicit drug sales. Detectives also found glass measuring cups, whisks, and spoons; evidence of the manufacturing of crack cocaine. The cocaine, crack cocaine, and marijuana were packaged in a manner consistent with the street level sale of the drugs. Detectives say the total estimated street value of the drugs is over $12,000. The drugs were located within 2,000 feet of a church. Dyer and Washington were transported to the St. Mary Parish Law Enforcement Center for booking. Dyer’s bail is set at $50,000.
