27 Rocks of Crack Cocaine, LIVINGSTON, April 7, 2011 - At approximately 9:30 pm on April 6, 2011, Officer Adam Williford with the Livingston Police Department was patrolling on MLK when he came upon a large group of people loitering on MLK and Colita. Officer Williford instructed the group to disburse (the City of Livingston has a no loitering policy). As Williford was monitoring the situation, he noticed one of the people, Nigel Farr, 21, of Livingston, dropped a pack of cigarettes. Williford became suspicious when Farr kicked the pack of cigarettes under his vehicle (rather than just pick up the pack of cigarettes). By now, Williford was joined by Officer Dallas Early. Williford examined the pack of cigarettes that actually turned out to be a pack of crack cocaine. The cigarette pack contained 27 rocks of crack cocaine. Williford placed Nigel Farr under arrest for felony possession of crack cocaine. Farr was booked into Polk County Jail. The rocks are have an estimated value of $20 each. Neighbors in that vicinity have been complaining to Livingston Police Department about possible drug dealing going on in the area.
A total of 27 rocks of crack cocaine disguised in a cigarette pack. The rocks are valued a $20 apiece.
