BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Narcotics agents with the Bossier Sheriff's Office and Bossier City Police Department arrested four persons in two separate narcotics cases in Bossier City.

Authorities say tips led agents with the Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force to start a drug investigation on Thursday at the home of Bridget L. Mears, 24, of the 1700 block of Southview Drive, and her boyfriend, Christopher W. Holman, 33, of the 2000 block of Ice Cream Street in Shreveport.

Agents say they found 52 grams of marijuana and a digital scale inside the residence and arrested Mears and Holman on charges of possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mears was also arrested on a Bossier Sheriff's Office warrant on six counts of distribution of marijuana, while Holman was additionally charged with resisting an officer for giving a false name to the agents as well as on a fugitive warrant with the Bossier City Police Department.

On a separate narcotics investigation at a Bossier City hotel Thursday afternoon, agents say they arrested Christine L. Connors, 28, of Williston, N.D., and Drew P. Neiertz, 27, of Overland Park, Kan., when they found loose marijuana and several smoking devices in their room. Agents say they also found loose marijuana and a .45 caliber pistol in their vehicle. 

Agents say both admitted to smoking the marijuana, and Neiertz admitted the handgun was his. They were both charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and Neiertz was additionally charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with a firearm.

All four were booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.

The Bossier Combined Narcotics Task Force comprises agents from the Bossier Sheriff's Office and the Bossier City Police Department. The team was established in October last year by Sheriff Julian Whittington and Police Chief Shane McWilliams.
