911 call leads to four arrests on drug charges in Ames

These items were reportedly taken by law enforcement from a vehicle in Ames on May 6. The four men inside the vehicle are facing multiple criminal charges.

Four men are facing multiple criminal charges after they were arrested May 6 by the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office with the assistance of a K-9 unit with the Pct. 2 Constable’s Office.

Their arrests came after deputies were dispatched following a 911 call regarding shots fired to a home on the 400 block of E. Main St. in Ames. When they arrived in the area, they reportedly observed a vehicle backed up on the property with the driver’s door open, according to a statement from Sheriff Bobby Rader.

As the deputies approached the vehicle, a person in the back passenger seat attempted to flee, the sheriff said. The man was detained and identified as Sedric Wayne Deblanc, 19. The driver and two other passengers reportedly exited the vehicle and attempted to leave, but all were detained by deputies.

They were identified as David Mark Higginbotham, Jr., 19, Wade Mouton II, 23, and Levar Tremaine Domain, Jr., 20. A LCSO deputy reportedly observed a weapon in the vehicle.

“Everyone denied ownership of the weapon,” Rader said.

A K-9 unit was requested and a Deputy Constable K-9 unit from Pct. 2 arrived to assist.

“About this time, Deblanc attempted to leave the scene again. He was once again detained. The presence of illegal narcotics was detected by the K-9 and a search of the vehicle was made. In addition to the weapon crushed Ecstasy tablets weighing approximately 19 grams and synthetic marijuana were found. Again, everyone denied ownership,” the sheriff said.

All four men were arrested and charged with two counts of Manufacture or Delivery of a Controlled Substance and Unlawful Carrying a Weapon.

The defendants were taken to the Liberty County Jail and released to the book-in staff without incident.

According to Rader, LCSO responded to a shots fired call at the same residence earlier in the week. A subject was shot in the leg and refused to file charges.


  1. At the store in Ames you can sell drugs openly without anything happening. Everyday we have drug users and dealer selling and using drugs at the store and behind it and the majority of these people don’t live in Ames. People drink beer at the store an expose themselves to everyone driving on 160 south. You can watch the Sheriff Dept ride right by these people and do nothing..

  2. The so called law enforcers knows about the drug dealings not only in Amos but in the whole Liberty County, but they are not concerned about any of them until election time. It really is sad how corrupt our government and law officials are
