Shreveport Police Catch Well-Known Drug Dealer During Traffic Stop

For more than a year law enforcement agencies have been working together to catch a well known drug dealer, and Tuesday night their efforts paid off.

Police agencies from local, state and federal levels were involved with the investigation.

Wednesday afternoon police held a press conference to show off the eight pounds of cocaine and $53,000 found inside the car of 27-year-old David Ashley.

It was discovered during a traffic stop Tuesday last night.

Police say more arrests are expected in the future.
