BOGALUSA MAN ARRESTED FOR HEROIN POSSESSION

Harvie H. Miller, 58, a resident of Avenue E in Bogalusa, was arrested by a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy on February 1 and booked into the Washington Parish Jail on one count of possession of heroin and one count of possession of methamphetamine.  He was released  the same day after posting a $10,000 bond.

The deputy was patrolling on Superior Avenue when he saw the driver of a Nissan commit a traffic offense.  The driver was stopped and asked to produce a driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof insurance.  The deputy noticed Miller was very nervous and visibly shaking.  After Miller exited his vehicle, the deputy conducted a pat down search and then asked Miller to empty his pockets on the hood of the patrol car. 

As the deputy began to check the items which came from Miller’s pocket, Miller suddenly grabbed at his wallet, at which time the wallet fell open exposing a plastic bag. When questioned about the contents of the bag, Miller admitted that it was heroin.   At that point, the deputy placed Miller under arrest and called for a wrecker to tow Miller’s vehicle.  While conducting an inventory of the vehicle, the patrol deputy discovered more heroin along with methamphetamine.

 “Heroin and methamphetamine use and abuse is common among all age groups,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  “In this case we have a fifty-eight year old man driving our streets while possessing these illegal drugs.   I congratulate our patrol deputy for being alert and getting these drugs out of our community.”
