On October 7, Washington Parish Sheriff's Office Deputy Jay Dupre was traveling on Avenue B in Bogalusa when he noticed a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner, carelessly passing other vehicles and speeding through a school zone. The truck, which had an expired license plate, proceeded north on Avenue B, crossed the bridge and then turned onto Okechobee before the driver stopped in response to Deputy Dupre's pursuit.


The driver, Dana H. McLemore, 59, a resident of Highway 1072, had illegal drugs on his person and in his truck. He was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where he was booked on three counts of possession of illegal drugs, possessing drugs in a drug free zone, having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle and traffic offenses.


"Drinking and driving combined with illegal drugs is not a good way to navigate the streets of our parish," stated Sheriff Randy Seal. "I appreciate Deputy Dupre's alertness and his pro-active law enforcement. As our officers roam throughout the parish, they are always on the lookout for any person who is violating the law. I am so pleased with the hard work of all of the men and women of your Washington Parish Sheriff's Office."
