Three men arrested on drugs and weapons charges in Gentilly
The NOPD’s Special Operations Division arrested three suspects on Tuesday (Sept. 28) on illegal narcotics and weapons charges in Gentilly. All of the men have since been released on bond.
Byron Charles, 27, Damien Washington, 19, and Damico Davis, 22, were arrested in the 3400 block of Franklin Avenue.
Charles and Washington face charges of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, crack cocaine, heroin/fentanyl, hydrocodone and Promethazine. Davis is accused of possession with intent to distribute the same drugs. All three men are accused of having firearms while in possession of dangerous controlled substances.
Sheriff’s Office records indicate that Charles and Washington were each released on $7,500 bond. Davis’ bond was set for $25,000, and records show he was no longer jailed on Thursday (Sept. 30).
