Narcotics officers have arrested a man accused of selling drugs from his home and through the walk-up window of the fast-food restaurant where he worked.

At 6:40 a.m. Friday, Fort Wayne police raided James E. Williams’ home at 601 Congress Ave., near Lafayette Street, and seized a .25-caliber handgun, drug paraphernalia and undisclosed amounts of marijuana and cocaine.

Before the raid, detectives bought cocaine from Williams twice at his home and a third time during his shift at the fast-food restaurant on South Anthony Boulevard, according to police.
