Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Bobby Webre reports the Sheriff’s Office is continuing its efforts in the parish to arrest individuals that are failing to appear in court after being arrested on felony and misdemeanor criminal charges. The ongoing initiative is “OPERATION NO SHOW.”
Persons who are arrested on criminal charges are entitled to a bond. Upon bonding from jail the individual is given notice to be in court on a specific date. The following individuals ignored their court date which subsequently led to a bench warrant being issued by the court for failure to appear:
Blaine Lee, 33m of 14508 Oak Meadow Road, Gonzales, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for battery on ER Personnel.
Steven Harris, 31, of 43244 Norwood Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for possession of CDS II, possession of CDS I, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jomichael Taylor, 26, of 18095 Little Prairie Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for two counts illegal carry of weapons, two counts possession with intent to distribute CDS I, possession of CDS IV, two counts possession of CDS II, possession of a legend drug without a prescription, two counts possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting an officer.
Timothy Wright, 52, of 37113 White Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for impersonation of a police officer and reckless operation.
Alexandro Price, 36, of 628 W. Jeansonne Ave., apartment 3, Gonzales, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for two counts possession with intent to distribute CDS I.
In an effort to reduce these felony bench warrant numbers, the Sheriff’s Office is airing a photograph and name of a person that has failed to appear in court, Chief Deputy Webre said.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office at 225-621-INFO (4636) or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-STOP (7867).
