TANGIPAHOA PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

A former Tangipahoa Parish deputy has been arrested, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Roxanne Hammond, 48, of Hammond, faces charges of malfeasance in office and illegally supplying a felon with a firearm and ammunition.

The arrest came after a July 26 incident in Livingston Parish where Hammond's husband, 42-year-old Roger David Hammond Jr., was identified as a suspect in a shooting. As a result of the incident in Livingston, a search warrant was obtained and executed at the Hammond home on July 27. The search yielded several unsecured weapons and a large amount of ammunition. Items were seized by Livingston detectives for comparison in their case, and Roxanne Hammond was taken into custody.

Roger David Hammond Jr. was arrested when he returned to home while deputies were still executing the search. He was arrested on charges of marijuana possession, possession of CDS IV, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and body armor, and for being a fugitive of another jurisdiction for warrants related to the Livingston shooting.  

“I continue to demand high standards in my department," said Tangipahoa Sheriff Daniel Edwards in a news release. "Hammond’s actions do not reflect the core values and the integrity of the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office. Illegal activity has no place here and will not be tolerated."
