Warrants suspect charged with home invasion

Press Release from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:

On August 31, Derrick Dewayne Gibson, Jr., 28, was arrested by the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office and placed in the Washington Parish Jail where he remains without bond pending a mandatory appearance before a 22nd Judicial Court Judge. Gibson was arrested by Sgt. Jay Dupre and Sgt. David Cupp.

Responding to a 911 call, the officers encountered Gibson who had active warrants. An investigation of the situation led to Gibson being arrested on other charges in addition to the outstanding warrants. Gibson remains in jail charged with two counts of home invasion, three counts of violation of a protective order, false imprisonment, domestic abuse aggravated assault, domestic abuse child endangerment, domestic abuse of a pregnant woman, two counts of contempt of court and failure to honor a written promise.

According to jail records, this is Gibson’s tenth incarceration in Washington Parish. His previous arrests began in 2011 for possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest by aggravated flight and obstruction of justice. A 2014 arrest was for possession of illegal drugs and resisting an officer. A later 2014 arrest was for possession of illegal drugs and driving while intoxicated. In 2015, he faced charges of possession of illegal drugs and traffic offenses.

He was placed in jail in 2017 by the 22nd Judicial Court for matters related to previous arrests. Three months later, he was arrested again for possession of illegal drugs and introduction of contraband into the jail. Gibson’s 2018 arrest was for domestic abuse battery, failure to appear in court and traffic offenses. Another domestic abuse battery arrest occurred in 2019, followed by a second arrest later that year for failure to appear in court.

“Ten arrests in less than ten years is difficult for honest citizens to comprehend,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “It’s always good to get a career criminal out of our community and I applaud Sgt. Dupre and Sgt. Cupp for their good work in this matter. It’s obvious they saved an innocent woman and child from harm.”
