BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – A suspected drug dealer was arrested after a short chase with Baton Rouge police on Wednesday.

According to police documents, the Baton Rouge Police Department (BRPD) was alerted to potential drug sales happening in the 900 block of West Grant Street. Detectives noticed a man pull into the driveway, get out of a black Kia Forte and enter the residence after surveillance was set up at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. A short time later, the same person exited the apartment and left the scene in the vehicle, according to police.

After police initiated a traffic stop, citing no license plate light, the vehicle reportedly drove near a duplex on Wyoming Street. Once the sedan stopped, police say, the driver ran behind a storage building. There was a foot chase before the driver was shocked with a taser and caught.

BRPD identified Harold Tuiel, 45, of Baton Rouge as the driver. Detectives said he was the subject of the drug complaint they were investigating.

Tuiel, according to police documentation, said he tried to flee because he had been drinking and driving. BRPD reportedly found a bag of narcotics on or near him.

Police noted half a container of cold beer while searching his vehicle. BRPD also reported finding $772 in the trunk.

In search of the apartment on West Grant Street, police reportedly found marijuana cigarettes, a marijuana grinder, and a clear baggie with a white powder.

During the booking process, police said detectives found that the 45-year-old had 9.6 ounces of crack cocaine, 1.1 ounces of powdered cocaine and an ecstasy pill.

Tuiel was arrested on charges of resisting an officer, possession of alcohol in a vehicle, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession/distribution manufacturing Schedule I, possession of marijuana, and possession/distribution manufacturing Schedule II.

Tuiel’s bond was set at $11,500.
