BUSINESS THIEF ARRESTED

BUSINESS THIEF ARRESTED

 

On May 31, Washington Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a business theft northwest of Franklinton.  Arriving on the scene, deputies learned that a male subject had attempted to steal items from the business, and then fled on foot when he was confronted.  Deputies then began to search the area for the suspect and encountered a disabled vehicle on the side of the road.

 

The driver of the vehicle, 42 year old Curtis Warren, Jr., a resident of Magee Drive, was uncooperative with officers and began backing away.  When officers attempted to gain control of Warren, he physically resisted before being restrained.  Deputies then learned that the vehicle had been stolen from a nearby residence.

 

Warren was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where he was booked on charges of theft, theft of a motor vehicle and resisting arrest.  He has eleven documented arrests beginning in 2006 when he was arrested for possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute.  Subsequent arrests since that time were for a multitude of charges, including illegal drug offenses, burglary, theft, failure to appear in court, probation violation and traffic offenses.

 

"Shoplifting affects not only the business, but also customers," stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  "It seems he made at least two bad decisions.  First, he attempted to steal from a business.  Next, he stole a vehicle that had been parked due to major transmission issues.  Let's hope future decisions will be more positive."
