At the time, police said at least of the guns was stolen out of Bossier City. All the items were also found in the presence of a child.

Following the search, probation officers requested that Caddo Sheriff’s investigators secure a search warrant for the home.

During the search, CPSO found more methamphetamine, packing material, a digital scale, and $381 in cash.

Ford was convicted of:

  • possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute
  • illegal carrying of weapons while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance
  • five counts of gun possession

Ford is due back in court on May 17 for sentencing. He faces more than 20 years in prison and tens of thousands of dollars in fines.
