 Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal commented.  “Our patrol division did a fabulous job in gathering information about these two women and then passing it on to our Drug Task Force detectives who were then able to intercept and arrest them.  All of these fine officers deserve a pat on the back and a hearty ‘thank you’ for a job well done.”

 Sheriff Seal continued, stating, “I’ve said it many times before and I’ll say it again.  We work closely with officers from all of our surrounding agencies as well as state and federal officers.  We will continue to combine resources to arrest and incarcerate drug dealers and other criminals who prey on our honest citizens.”
