POPLARVILLE MAN IN WRONG PLACE AT RIGHT TIME

POPLARVILLE MAN IN WRONG PLACE AT RIGHT TIME

 Calvin Joseph Dubois, 28, a resident of 208 Hillview Drive in Poplarville, is in the Washington Parish Jail for theft from a flea market located on Highway 21 south of Bogalusa. 

On January 31, the owner of the flea market reported the theft and provided Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives with video of the suspected thief as he wandered through the business establishment.  A photo of the suspect was lifted from the video and distributed to Washington Parish officers. 

The next morning, Washington Parish detective Kody Glenn was exiting his Bogalusa dentist’s office when he spotted Dubois at a stop sign.  He quickly apprehended Dubois and placed him in the Washington Parish Jail.  At this time, Dubois remains in jail with no bond set. 

Sheriff Randy Seal commented.  “This is a case of Dubois being in the wrong place at the right time.  It was the wrong place for him and the right place for the business owner and the Sheriff’s Office.  I congratulate Detective Glenn for being alert and bringing this investigation to a quick conclusion.  This is another example of the importance of business owners having a video surveillance system.”
