Drug Dealers Arrested At Bogalusa Hotel

Acting on a citizen’s tip of unusual activity occurring on Columbia Street in Bogalusa, Washington Parish Sheriff’s deputies and Bogalusa Police officers discovered drug dealers operating out of a room at the Choctaw Motel in Bogalusa the evening of April 28.

 When officers arrived at the room, they found numerous illegal drugs scattered about along with weapons and three drug dealers.  Additional illegal drugs were discovered in their vehicle which was in the parking lot.  All three individuals were arrested and transported initially to the Bogalusa City Jail and then to the Washington Parish Jail.

 Arrested and charged with multiple offenses was Jamarius Charles Johnson, 19, a resident of Elm Drive in Bogalusa.   Johnson was booked into the Washington Parish Jail and charged with:

  • Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substance With Weapon Present
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule I Narcotics
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule II Narcotics (2 counts)
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
  • Sale, Distribution or Possession of Legend Drugs Without a Prescription
  • Failure to Appear (2 counts)

 Arrested also was Bryant Keith Myers, 18, a resident of Ontario Avenue in Bogalusa.  Myers was booked into the Washington Parish Jail and charged with:

  • Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substance With Weapon Present
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule I Narcotics
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule II Narcotics (2 counts)
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

 William Robinson, 41, was the third person arrested.  A resident of Bund Street in Bogalusa, Robinson was booked into the Washington Parish Jail and charged with:

  • Possession of Controlled Dangerous Substance With Weapon Present
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule I Narcotics
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule II Narcotics
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

 In addition to these charges, Robinson also has outstanding warrants involving the distribution of illegal drugs.

 Bond for the three men has not been set at this time.

 Sheriff Randy Seal stated, “When we received this information, we acted quickly.  Suspecting that both illegal drugs and firearms might be present, we enlisted the help of the Bogalusa Police Department to provide additional personnel.”

 Sheriff Seal continued, “It is always satisfying to law enforcement officers when we are able to get potentially violent drug dealers off of our streets.  We are grateful the drug dealers’ guns were not used against these fine officers and that the arrests were made in a safe manner.  Our officers and Bogalusa officers went home safely.  The drug dealers went to jail.  That is the way it is supposed to work.  Thank you, Bogalusa Police Department, for your assistance.”

 By the way, Seal concluded, “We know there are other drug dealers out there.  We have them on our radar and there is always a place for them in the Washington Parish Jail.  Sooner or later we will have the privilege of introducing them to a four inch mattress and a steel bunk.”
