WPSO: Pair charged with drug offenses
Press Release from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:
Shortly before midnight on October 12, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Jay Dupre was on criminal patrol on Highway 439 when he witnessed the driver of a vehicle intentionally throwing litter out of the car. He stopped the vehicle and encountered two persons whom he arrested after finding illegal drugs.
Donnie Caine Magee, 41, and Kimberly Haley Davis, 40, of Bush, were arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail.
Magee was booked on charges of possession of illegal drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, intentional littering and failure to appear in court. Davis was booked on two charges of possession of illegal drugs.
Magee has a long history of incarceration in Washington Parish, beginning with an arrest in February 2009 on charges of aggravated battery and driving while intoxicated. In December 2010, he was arrested again and charged with second degree battery. A May 2011 arrest was for charges of possession of illegal drugs, introducing drugs into a correctional facility and being a fugitive from Louisiana Probation and Parole. A domestic abuse with strangulation charge was the result of an arrest in July 2016. In 2017 he was arrested on an outstanding warrant and in February 2020 he was arrested and charged with simple battery. His last previous arrest was in August 2020 on a charge of contempt of court.
Davis has two previous arrests in Washington Parish. In February 2010, she was arrested for obstruction of justice and in March 2019, she was arrested for possession of stolen property.
“Thanks, Sergeant Dupre, for your alert law enforcement,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Even a non-violent offense such as intentional littering often leads to the discovery of more serious offenses. That was the case in this arrest and that is why our officers are always proactive as they patrol our parish, twenty-four hours per day.”
