Dismantled smoke alarm leads casino security to drug bust

Posted: Updated:

A Texas man who tried outsmarting a smoke detector was arrested for drugs at Grand Falls Casino near Larchwood, IA.

Sean Williams, 26, of Houston is charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. He was arrested at approximately 10:45 pm Saturday.

Todd Jones, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, said Williams or someone in his party dismantled a smoke detector that was wired into the casino's security system. Jones said security was notified once the detector was dismantled.

A search warrant was obtained after security could smell what they thought was marijuana. During the arrest, agents found a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Jones said Williams was arrested without incident.
