2 arrested for possession of narcotics


Deputies and detectives from the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office made two drug arrests late last week.

The first arrest came when officers encountered 24-year-old Tristan Adam Thomas, a resident of Broad Street in Tylertown, Mississippi. Thomas was reportedly inside a business, then in the business parking lot east of Bogalusa, and behaving strangely and suspiciously. When the deputy located him, it was discovered that he had an outstanding warrant from the 22nd Judicial District Court in addition to a quantity of heroin concealed inside his vehicle. He was transported to Washington Parish Jail and bail was set at $5,000.

The other arrest occurred inside the town of Bogalusa when a narcotics detective observed intentional littering on Jefferson Street. The driver of the vehicle was arrested and his passenger, Destyn Alissa Freeman, 27, a resident of Cedar Road in Bogalusa, was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and marijuana. Freeman was arrested and transported to Washington Parish Jail with her bond set at $40,500.

Once at the jail, a corrections assistant discovered heroin and additional methamphetamine concealed on Freeman’s person. It was also learned that Freeman had outstanding warrants from the 22nd Judicial Court for contempt of court and failure to appear in court.

Freeman is familiar with the inside of the Washington Parish Jail, having been held there seven times, starting with an arrest in 2014. She has faced numerous charges over the years, including multiple counts of possession. of illegal drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, several counts of contempt of court and other charges.

“Two good drug arrests,” Sheriff Randy Seal said. “If you are involved in illegal drugs, please know that one of our officers can observe and arrest you. We have zero tolerance for illegal drugs in our community and always have a place in the Washington Parish Jail which is reserved for you.”
