Narcotics detectives capture wanted suspect
Press Release from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:
On July 29, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office narcotics detectives located Christopher Rashad Brown, 30, who was wanted on outstanding felony warrants. Detectives first observed him on Choctaw Road, traveling at an excessive rate of speed. After a chase, during which Brown dangerously failed to yield at two intersections, detectives were able to stop him on Highway 1072 and take him into custody.
During the arrest, detectives discovered a quantity of methamphetamine, suboxone and cash. He was transported to the Washington Parish Jail and booked on two counts of possession with intent to distribute illegal drugs, two counts of distribution of illegal drugs, obstruction of justice and traffic offenses.
Brown was in the Washington Parish Jail on one previous occasion. In 2011, he was jailed for distribution of illegal drugs and obstruction of justice.
“Drug dealers should never underestimate the diligence of our drug task force detectives,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “They are forever on the lookout for those engaged in the illegal drug trade and, sooner or later, they will find and arrest them. I appreciate their hard work on behalf of all the honest citizens of Washington Parish.”
