MONROE — Christopher Takewell, 38, of Choudrant, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for drug distribution. U.S. District Judge Robert G. James handed down the sentence on Monday. Takewell was also sentenced with five years of supervised release.
According to evidence presented at the Sept. 25, guilty plea, law enforcement agents conducted a controlled purchase of 104.65 grams of pure methamphetamine in January 2014 from Takewell at his home. The residence was searched on Jan. 24, 2014, and the $6,250 used in the controlled purchase was recovered.
The Ruston Police Department reportedly caught a would-be burglar in the act with the help of a tip from a neighbor at approximately 6:30 a.m. Feb. 20.

Emile Frey, a teacher at Ruston High School, received funding from DonorsChoose.org for a slow motion unvestigation project that provides two slow-motion cameras that enable physics students to learn about the motion of objects.
“Students can investigate forces and motion frame by frame,” Frey said. “For instance, by dropping a ball in front of a measuring device and using the slow motion footage, students can calculate the acceleration due to gravity for themselves.”
