During patrols, officers noticed a male subject – later identified as Kelly – conducting multiple hand-to-hand narcotics transactions. When officers approached Kelly for an investigatory stop, Kelly reportedly fled on foot for a short distance before he was apprehended.

During the apprehension, Kelly was found to be in possession of crack cocaine and approximately $315 in cash.

A search warrant was then secured and executed for Kelly’s vehicle revealing a loaded rifle, Gabapentin tablets, Tramadol pills, and Tapentadol tablets.

Kelly was arrested and booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center for illegal possession of the aforementioned drugs, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm while in the possession of a CDS, and resisting an officer.

Anyone with additional information on this incident is asked to contact NOPD Sixth District detectives at 504-658-6060.
