Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Major Kevin Hanna 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:
Anthony Wilson Sr., 47, of 37113 White Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for theft.
Tyler Perkins, 29, of 115North Anita Street, Gonzales, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for possession of schedule II CDS; fail to dim lights, driving under suspension, second possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Dane Sheets, 23, of 16310 Beech Street, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for domestic abuse battery.
Nathan Chaney, 29, of 18312 Syble Road, Gonzales, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for possession of altered prescription, possession of CDS IV, possession of CDS III, and is wanted on a patrol warrant for domestic abuse battery.
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, Major Hanna 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).
