City officers make big bust

Thomson police Tuesday confiscated drugs with an estimated street value of more than $3,000 and impounded a car from in front of a home on Mendel Avenue.

The incident happened around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday, when Thomson Police officers Jesse Bowman, Calvin Johnson and Chris Bailey and Carolyn Andrews from the local housing authority went to a home at 317 Mendel Avenue. Officer Bowman, whose salary is paid by the housing authority, said a black male was sitting in a white Geo Prism that was parked in front of the house and another black male was standing in the front yard. Both men fled when police arrived.

Officer Bowman said Officer Johnson opened the driver's door of the still-running car and found a white plastic bag. Inside the bag was eight smaller bags of a green, leafy substance, a pill bottle with 73 pieces of off-white rocks, a clear bag containing an off-white rock and a bottle of an off-white powdery substance.

Late Tuesday, investigators were still looking for the two men, but Officer Bowman said they had a good idea of who they were looking for.

He said the bust was the result of a tip and goes a long way toward keeping drugs away from local residents, especially those in the housing authority communities.

"Any bust is an important bust for us, but this one is especially substantial," he said.
