ANGIE TEENS ARRESTED
On November 6, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested two Angie teens. Justin Gunnell, 17, a resident of Fornea Road in Angie, was placed in the Washington Parish Jail charged with burglary of an inhabited dwelling, criminal damage to property and five counts of theft of firearms. Gunnells’s bond was set at $10,500. He met the conditions of his bond and was released from jail on November 7.
Gary Crumedy, 17, a resident of William Lewis Road in Angie, was placed in the Washington Parish Jail charged with burglary of an inhabited dwelling and criminal damage to property. Crumedy’s bond was set at $5,500 and he remains in jail.
The arrests resulted from an investigation of a residential burglary on Fornea Road and a theft of firearms that occurred at another residence. Evidence and testimony pointed to Gunnell and Crumedy as prime suspects. When confronted by detectives, both young men confessed to the crimes.
“It concerns me,” said Sheriff Randy Seal, “to see young men like these two involved in criminal activity. It is not a good start for them, but the arrests give each young man an opportunity to assess his direction in life and to set positive goals for the future. It is my sincere hope that the stark reality of this arrest signals the beginning of a new course for each of them.”
