Drug dealing at drive-thru charged

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.

Police declined to release the name of the restaurant.

Williams, 29, was preliminarily charged with three counts of dealing cocaine. He was held at the Allen County Lockup in lieu of $150,000 bail.
