A long-term narcotics investigation results in the arrest of a Baton Rouge man late Tuesday evening.

Bruce Causey, 40, was arrested after a search of his home revealed nearly four pounds of cocaine, 116 units of hydrocodone, 10 units of MDMA, 16.5 grams of marijuana, 7.6 ounces of promethazine with Codeine cough syrup, a handgun, and more than $71,000 in cash.

Baton Rouge Police say the street value for the drugs is more than $200,000.

Narcotics K-9 assisted in locating the cocaine and money inside the home.

"We know that he's a drug dealer, he's been trafficking drugs for a while - he's been in and out of jail. He's definitely not new to that arena," said Cpl. L'Jean McKneely with the Baton Rouge Police Department.

Causey has been charged with possession with intent to distribute cocaine in excess of 400 grams, marijuana, hydrocodone, MDMA, promethazine with codeine, possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a firearm by convicted felon and obstruction of justice.

He is being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without a bond.
