Acting on numerous complaints from concerned citizens, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force detectives and agents from the Louisiana Department of Probation and Parole arrested Terry Lane Watson, 37, on March 15.  Watson is a resident of Highway 1072 near Franklinton. 

The officers arrested Watson at his residence and recovered several used and unused syringes with needles attached and a digital scale.  Watson was transported to the Washington Parish Jail.  While dressing Watson out in jail clothing, officers discovered a zip-lock baggie containing  methamphetamine in one of his pockets.  He was booked into the jail charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Watson is currently on probation and no bond has been set at this time. 

Watson’s first arrest was in February, 2011, when he was thirty years old.  His other jail stays were in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.  His multiple arrests were for drug offenses, driving while intoxicated, burglary, theft, contempt of court and probation violation. 

“Fourteen jail stays in seven years is not good,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  “Sooner or later, Mr. Watson must take personal responsibility for his behavior and make some serious lifestyle decisions.  Otherwise, the future does not bode well for him.”
