TRAFFIC STOP PRODUCES DRUGS AND PISTOL

TRAFFIC STOP PRODUCES DRUGS AND PISTOL

 

Late in the evening of January 14, Washington Parish Sheriff's Office Deputy Kyle Stogner and Detectives Raymond Myers and Chad Cassard were on criminal patrol near Angie when they spotted a vehicle which had been driven through a stop sign without stopping.  The officers initiated a traffic stop and encountered Garrett Wayne Simmons, 24, a resident of Adams Street in Bogalusa.

 

Simmons had a loaded semi-automatic  9 mm pistol in his jacket pocket as well as marijuana and  methamphetamine visible inside his vehicle.    Simmons was arrested and placed in the Washington Parish Jail charged with possession of controlled dangerous substances with a weapon present, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine and running a stop sign.

 

"What started out as a routine traffic stop resulted in drugs and a weapon removed from our community," stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  "I commend our officers for always being alert as they patrol our communities around the clock to help keep us safe."
