Pre-Dawn Drug Raid

Before dawn on May 18, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force executed a search warrant, seizing large quantities of drugs, cash and weapons.  Arrested were Kerry Wayne Forrest, 43, and Kenneth Wayne Williams, 35,  residents of Ann Street in Bogalusa.  The Drug Task Force includes officers from the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Franklinton Police Department and the Bogalusa Police Department.  They were assisted by officers from Rayburn Correctional Center.

Both Forrest, whose street name is Pooky Wayne, and Williams, whose street name is Koaltree, have lengthy criminal records.  Forrest has more than two dozen arrests for various drug offenses and other criminal violations.  Williams also has multiple arrests for various drug offenses and other criminal violations. 

 Drug Task Force detectives presented evidence and information gathered through a lengthy investigation to a 22nd Judicial District Court Judge who issued the search warrant.  After arresting the two men,  Drug Task Force detectives searched the premises and seized:

  • 39 grams of heroin
  • 49 grams of crack cocaine
  • 24 grams of powder cocaine
  • 14 grams of methamphetamine
  • 8 grams of marijuana
  • numerous narcotic pills
  • $17,052 cash consisting primarily of $100 bills
  • 1 AR-15 rifle
  • 3 shotguns
  • 1 pistol
  • 16 cell phones
  • 4 sets of scales used to weigh drugs

 Each man was placed in the Washington Parish Jail without bail.  Kerry Wayne Forrest is charged with:

  • Distribution of Schedule I Drugs -- (two counts)
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule I Drugs
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule II Drugs (4 counts)
  • Possession With Intent to Distribute Schedule III Drugs
  • Possession of Schedule IV Drugs
  • Possession of Schedule V Drugs

 “We have done our job,” said Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal.  “Now it is time for the rest of the justice system to do their job to obtain convictions and make certain these two men spend many years in prison.  The streets and roadways of our parish are not safe as long as career criminals are allowed to roam free.  I’m certain there are other drug dealers out there waiting to take the place of the two men we arrested.  Let me assure them that their time is coming also and we always have room in our  jail for one more.”
