At approximately 7:00 pm, January 19, 2008, Longview Police responded to 1602 Twelfth Street in an attempt to talk to the residents at this location.
Officers had received information that narcotics were being sold from this location and when they approached the open front door, they observed three black males rolling "blunts". They also observed rolled blunts as well as a pile of loose marijuana lying on the table.
One of the subjects saw the officers and slammed the door closed. Officers attempted to open the door but were unsuccessful and they then heard one of the subjects attempting to jump out a window at the back of the residence. He was taken into custody and officers then entered the house through that window.
Once inside the house, officers took the other two subjects into custody and contacted the County Organized Drug Enforcement (CODE) Unit and they assisted in securing a search warrant for the residence.
During the search of the residence, officers found guns along with suspected Xanax and cash.
Police arrested Aries Christopher Biagas, 33, of Longview, Kevin Jerrell Reese, 24, of Longview, and Frederick Lemont Black, 21, of Longview.
