WASHINGTON PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A Bogalusa man was arrested in Washington Parish for multiple offenses Tuesday.

Washington Parish deputies arrested Michael Burton, 31, of Long Avenue, after a domestic dispute in the parking lot of the Sportsman’s Inn south of Bogalusa. A deputy said Burton had already left the scene, but was found at the Food Depot in Bogalusa. Deputies said he had illegal drugs, firearms and other illegal items with him.

Washington Drug Task Force detectives said they found over one and a half pounds of marijuana, one gram of heroin, crack cocaine six different narcotic pain medications, several firearms and $4,272.

Wildlife and Fisheries agents were called when it was discovered Burton had a dead raccoon and deer in the trunk of his vehicle.

Burton was booked into the Washington Parish Jail charged with three counts of failure to appear, two counts of possession with intent to distribute Schedule I drugs, four counts of possession of Schedule II drugs, one count of possession of Schedule III drugs, one count of possession of Schedule IV drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of controlled dangerous substances with weapons present.  He remains in jail with his bond set at $110,000.

 “Many thanks to our officers and officers from the Bogalusa Police Department and Wildlife and Fisheries,” said Sheriff Randy Seal. “Although the incident started in the parish, it ended inside the city due to the diligence of the Bogalusa Police Department. This is another example of effective working relationships between the various law enforcement agencies in Washington Parish. I thank Chief Culpepper and his fine officers for helping us to take another drug dealer off of the streets and into jail.”
