BOGALUSA, LA (WVUE) -

The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office completed its fourth drug round up of 2015, making four arrests and issuing warrants for eight others.

Arrested and put in the Washington Parish Jail were:

  • Chauncey Magee, 27,  Avenue F, Bogalusa, charged with Distribution of Heroin.  His bond is set at $100,000.
  • Regina Payne, 58, Jackie Robinson Street, Bogalusa, charged with Distribution of Schedule II Drugs.  Her bond is set at $75,000.

Two others on the roundup list were located earlier and placed in the jail:

  • Amber Jones, 23, Baton Rouge, charged with Distribution of Schedule II Drugs.  Her bond is set at $75,000.  Jones was located on Oct.1 and arrested.
  • Antwon Smith, 28,  Eddie Pittman Road, Angie, charged with Distribution of Schedule IV Drugs.  His bond was set at $75,000.  He met the bond conditions and has been released.

Others with warrants out for their arrest were unable to be located on Wednesday:

  • Montez Allen, Hollis Leslie Road, Angie, charged with Distribution of Schedule II Drugs

The sheriff said the easiest and safest thing for the wanted persons to do would be to turn themselves at the Washington Parish Jail in Franklinton.

“We have conducted four of these roundups in 2015 and participated with the Drug Enforcement Administration on another round of arrests on federal warrants.  As long as criminals continue to sell illegal drugs, we will continue to go after them and put them in jail," Sheriff Randy Seal said.

Seal said each of the defendants were captured on video and audio in the act of selling illegal drugs.  

Offices also discovered an "extra bonus" when they visited the home of Harris, one of the men still wanted. Investigators found illegal drugs in plain view. After getting a search warrant, deputies discovered more drugs and drug paraphernalia.

"More roundups are coming and if you are selling drugs, you may be next in line to get a ride to the parish jail in the backseat of one of our patrol cars,” Seal warned.

The sheriff's office had assistance from the Franklinton Police Department, Bogalusa Police Department and Rayburn Correctional Center during the round up.

Anyone with knowledge of the location of any of the individuals mentioned in this story is asked to contact the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office at (985) 839-3434.
