COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) -

When a Covington police officer stopped at a local convenience store Wednesday at around 2:15 a.m., the store the clerk told him a customer who was still in the parking lot made a threatening remark to her.

The officer walked out of the store and tried to talk to the suspect. As the officer approached, he saw the suspect take something out of his vehicle, put it in his waistband, then turn and walk away. 

The officer identified himself and ordered the suspect to stop, but police say the suspect ignored the commands and ran behind a building. The officer called for backup and police searched area but couldn't find the man. Inside his car in the parking lot, police found multiple loaded firearms, several rounds of ammunition and body armor.

Officers found out who owned the vehicle and called her. The owner told them that a man named David Hagan had borrowed the car and was staying in Covington. Officers went to the home and arrested Hagan and a man who gave a false identity, and was later discovered to be John Dakota Wayne. The original officer identified Wayne as the man who fled from him at the convenience store.

Wayne was booked with simple assault and resisting an officer by flight. Hagan was booked with possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful use of body armor. Both men were booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
