From Franklinton Police:
On June 23rd, officers with the Franklinton Police Department were notified of a reckless driver entering the town limits.
Officers attempted to make a traffic stop however the driver of the vehicle, 29 year old Zachary Scott Davis fled in his vehicle at a high rate of speed.
Officers were able to identify Davis and a warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest.
On June 29th, officers and WPSO deputies located Davis at a residence on Joby Magee Rd. Davis was taken into custody and at the time of arrest was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia.
Davis was booked into the Washington Parish Jail as a fugative on a warrant of Aggravated Flight from an Officer and additionally charged with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Chief Brown expresses his gratitude to the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office for their assistance and to the work by FPD officers.
Zackary Davis not only put his own life at risk but also that of our residents by his careless and dangerous driving behavior. Combined with his drug arrest, Davis has displayed a complete disregard for public safety; hopefully his time in the parish jail can change that.
