UPSO executes major drug bust

Union Parish Sheriff Bob Buckley said Monday that the arrest of Christopher J. “Perfec” Warren for distribution of crack cocaine is a major bust for the department’s Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Warren’s capture was one of two drug-related arrests made Monday.

Warren, 35, of 803 Rabun Rd., Farmerville, was arrested Monday on warrants charging him with four counts of distribution of cocaine. He is being held in the Union Parish Correction Center on a $100,000 bond. The buys coordinated by BNDD involved 12.5 grams with a street value of $1,000, Buckley said.

“He has been one of our biggest suspected drug dealers in Union Parish with a previous history of drug activity,” Buckley said. “The year-long investigation finally paid off.”

The sheriff said Warren has previously served prison time for the distribution of drugs.
“Our agents feel that the arrest will result in a large dent in illegal drug distribution in the area,” Buckley said.

In the other drug arrest, Patricia Conville, 36, of 198 Bearden Estates Rd., Farmerville, surrendered to deputies at the detention center after warrants were issued for her arrest on two counts of distribution of Lortab.

She posted bond of $36,000 and was released.

Buckley said that Conville came under investigation earlier this year. He said the illegal sale of prescription drugs continues to be a major problem for law enforcement.
