Three arrested for selling drugs to undercover agents
Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a four-month investigation has led to the arrest of three people Monday for selling prescription drugs to undercover agents.
Royrecas A. Dotie, 29, of Bossier City, sold 20 Lortab pills to sheriff’s agents for $240. Agents found a prescription bottle containing the Lortab registered in his name at the sale.
Agents also arrested Royrecas’ wife, Vanessa M. Dotie, 30, who had a prescription bottle registered in her name containing Lortab pills during the purchase. Lastly, Michael J. Gentry, 24, of Shreveport, was also arrested for selling the drugs.
After obtaining a warrant and searching the Dotie’s residence, detectives found a bag of suspected marijuana and two digital scales in the house, located within 1,000 feet of Elm Grove Middle School on Barksdale Blvd.
Royrecas and Vanessa were charged with distribution of drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana, and having a controlled dangerous substance within 1,000 feet of a school. Royrecas was also charged with possession of drugs, and further charges are pending on him for selling Xanax to Bossier agents. Gentry was charged with distribution of drugs.
All three were taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking, and bonds are as follows: Royrecas, $46,000; Vanessa, $31,000; and Gentry, $15,000.
