An on-going investigation by the MNPD’s Major Case Task Force into the distribution of heroin and cocaine in Antioch has led to the arrest of convicted drug felon Cedrick Watkins, 35, who has ties, at least on paper, to a youth football program.
During a search of Watkins’ 2776 Windcrest Trail home Wednesday, detectives seized 6.8 ounces of cocaine, 1.8 ounces of heroin, a stolen pistol, two vehicles and $3,246 cash. Also discovered was a USA Football coaching card in Watkins name. The Windcrest Trail address was listed as the office for an active nonprofit corporation linked to youth football.
Watkins is charged with multiple drug counts and unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon. He was released from jail after posting a $65,000 bond.
