On the morning of June 7, 2017, detectives with the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force were joined by Louisiana State Police narcotics agents, a Drug Enforcement Agency officer and a Louisiana Probation agent to serve a State Police arrest warrant on a Bogalusa resident who was on probation. 

Jashma Lavar Crumedy, 28, a resident of 1028 Miller Street, was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail charged with distribution of Schedule I Drugs, possession with intent to distribute Schedule I drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and being a fugitive from another jurisdiction.  Presently he is being held without bond. 

While conducting early morning surveillance on Crumedy’s residence,  the DEA officer observed  a vehicle drive into his driveway, at which time Crumedy exited the residence and conducted a hand-to-hand drug transaction.  Shortly thereafter, narcotics detectives arrived just as Crumedy was leaving his residence again and getting into his vehicle.  Observing the narcotics detectives pulling in behind him, Crumedy exited his vehicle and surrendered to the officers.  

A search of Crumedy’s vehicle produced a small amount of heroin, a quantity of baggies commonly used to package illegal narcotics for sale, and $193 in cash.  Officers then searched Crumedy’s residence and discovered an additional $2,200 concealed in a sock, his profits from conducting illegal drug sales, Crumedy’s only known source of income.  He is unemployed. 

Officers processed all seized items and displayed them to Sheriff Randy Seal who stated, “This is yet another example of the positive crime fighting results produced by our Drug Task Force as they work closely with officers from state and federal agencies.  Any time we can combine agency resources, we expand our ability to combat crime.  We will continue to work with other agencies within Louisiana and surrounding states to identify and arrest criminals.” 

Crumedy is no stranger to the Washington Parish Jail, having been incarcerated six times previously.  In 2006, he was in and out of the jail on the same day after posting a $500 bond for traffic offenses.  Early in 2008, he was locked up for possession of illegal drugs with intent  to distribute and a failure to appear charge.  Two months later he was released after posting a $100,000 bond.  Later in 2008, he spent a month in jail for traffic offenses, failure to appear and possession of stolen property.  He was released after posting an $8,000 bond.  

Crumedy’s next arrest was in 2009 for two counts of failure to appear.  He posted an $80,000 bond and was released after spending a month in jail.  In 2010 he spent two months in jail for failure to honor a written promise and was released after satisfying the court.  His final previous arrest was in 2014 when he spent four months in jail for the manufacture of Schedule III drugs.  He was released after posting a $50,000 bond.
