On a cold, rainy and windy morning, Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal led a contingent of multi-agency officers throughout the parish in search of drug dealers.  On February 24, with warrants in hand, officers from the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office, Franklinton Police Department, Rayburn Correctional Center and Louisiana Probation and Parole began the search for the identified drug dealers.

 Heading out with fourteen arrest warrants, officers were able to locate and arrest ten drug dealers.   The remaining four have been entered into the national criminal justice database and the Sheriff’s Office will continue to seek them.

 While conducting the round up, officers were also able to locate and arrest Montier Lewis, 27, a resident of Reid Simmons Road in Mt. Hermon.  Lewis was wanted on an outstanding warrant for Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling and remains in the Washington Parish Jail with bond set at $10,000.

 Sheriff Randy Seal said, “This was a good day for the law-abiding citizens of Washington Parish.  We were able to identify and arrest several drug dealers who have been plaguing our parish.  I always enjoy being with these fine law enforcement officers and watching them do their job.  They are a tremendous asset to our parish and I am grateful to all of them for their fine work.  As we go about our routine daily tasks in peace, it is because they are out there every day protecting us and helping to provide a safe environment for the good people of Washington Parish.”

 Sheriff Seal continued, “This message is for the four drug dealers who eluded us this week.  It would be in your best interest to turn yourself in, because we are going to find you, cuff you and put you in jail.  There is always room for one more in our jail and that one more is going to be you.”
