BATON ROUGE MAN ARRESTED ON DRUG CHARGES

In the early morning hours of June 29, a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol Sergeant received citizen complaints about a male inside the Pub Lounge on South Columbia Street in Bogalusa trying to sell drugs.  When officers arrived at the bar, several patrons pointed out a male standing near the front door.

 

Officers approached the man and advised him of the reason he was being questioned.  At that time, he admitted to being in possession of a few Ecstasy pills which were in the front cargo pocket of his shorts.  At this time, the officers escorted him to the parking lot, placed him in handcuffs and searched him.  Officers discovered thirty-nine various colored Ecstasy pills in a plastic baggie.

 

Pokeyto Kendre Peters, 30, a resident of South Harrells Ferry Road in Baton Rouge, was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail charged with Possession With Intent To Distribute Schedule I Drugs.  His bond has not been set at this time.

 

When advised of the arrest, Sheriff Randy Seal stated, “Ecstasy is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception.  Some think it is a safe alternative for drug use.  It isn’t.  It is an illegal drug and you will be arrested if our officers catch you selling it.”

 

Sheriff Seal continued, “Our patrol officers did an excellent job in identifying Peters and arresting him.  This is yet another example of the benefits which come from  the fine cooperation we have between the public and the Sheriff’s Office.   I encourage any citizen who has knowledge of a crime to contact our office at (985) 839-3434 or simply pass the information on to any of our fine officers.  Crimes can also be reported through our website or by sending a private message to our Facebook page.”
