Cocaine suspect describes self to Galveston police

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Galveston police knew who to look for - exactly - when they arrested an alleged delivery man in a call-for-cocaine investigation.

A 29-year-old Galveston man was jailed Friday on a charge of manufacturing or delivering a controlled substance.

Sgt. T. Barr, at the Galveston County Jail, told The Associated Press that John Patrick Lacour Jr. was held on $250,000 bond. Barr had no information on an attorney for Lacour.

Lacour is accused of taking delivery orders for crack over the phone.

Officers, acting on a tip, called the number and pretended to want to buy cocaine. They requested a delivery to a certain address, plus asked the person to describe himself so they would know who to expect.

Lt. D.J. Alvarez told the Galveston County Daily News that Lacour was arrested early Thursday when he arrived. Police confiscated a small amount of cocaine.
