PATROL DEPUTY SEIZES DRUGS AND SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPON

PATROL DEPUTY SEIZES DRUGS AND SEMI-AUTOMATIC WEAPON

 

Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputy Tyler Lindsey arrested a Sandy Hook man on May 25 for speeding, possession of drugs and possession of a controlled dangerous substance with a weapon present. 

While patrolling on Spring Valley Road south of Bogalusa, Deputy Lindsey used radar to clock a speeding vehicle.  He pursued the vehicle which entered the parking lot of an apartment complex.  While the driver was producing his driver’s license and other documentation, he was asked if any weapons were in the vehicle.  He appeared to be very nervous and admitted a rifle was in the trunk. 

A Stag Arms semi-automatic weapon was retrieved from the trunk of the vehicle, along with two magazines which were inside the vehicle.  In addition, illegal pills were seized from the glove compartment. 

Marcus Anton Mark, 23, a resident of Highway 48 in Sandy Hook, Mississippi, was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail charged with speeding, possession of Schedule 4 drugs, and possession of controlled dangerous substances with a weapon present.  He spent three days in jail before being released on a $5,000 bond. 

“Another weapon and more illegal drugs removed from our parish,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  “It is always gratifying for this Sheriff when that happens.  Thank you, Deputy Lindsey, for your good work.”
