ILLEGAL DRUGS, TRAFFIC OFFENSES AND FIGHTING WITH OFFICERS EARNS MAN JAIL TIME

ILLEGAL DRUGS, TRAFFIC OFFENSES AND

FIGHTING WITH OFFICERS EARNS MAN JAIL TIME

While patrolling in the Pine area on January 20, Washington Parish Sheriff's Office deputies Kyle Stogner and Randall Garcia observed a motor vehicle violation and stopped the driver who was in possession of illegal drugs.  Alex Weary, 51, who gave a Walthall County address, had marijuana in plain view on the front passenger seat of his vehicle.  Additionally, while being searched, Weary was found to be in possession of additional drugs packaged in a plastic baggie.

As officers attempted to place handcuffs on Weary, he struggled and resisted.  The deputies were able to restrain him with the assistance of Lt. Chris Hickman who arrived on the scene and placed leg restraints on Weary.

Weary has been in the Washington Parish Jail several times beginning with a 2009 arrest.  Previous offenses were possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute, driving while intoxicated, resisting an officer with force or violence, battery on a police officer, purse snatching, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, and battery of a dating partner.

Weary's current charges are possession of illegal drugs, resisting an officer, obstruction of justice and motor vehicle violations.  He remains in jail awaiting an appearance before a 22nd Judicial District Court Judge.

"Mr. Weary is well known to law enforcement," stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  "He is a repeat offender who seems to have not learned the life lessons necessary to live as a law abiding citizen.  I appreciate Deputy Stogner, Deputy Garcia and Lt. Hickman for making this arrest and removing more illegal drugs from our parish."
