Sheriff’s Office arrests 2 fugitives

On Wednesday, the Bogalusa Police Department requested the assistance of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office to locate two fugitives who were believed to be in the Mt. Hermon area, according to WPSO Chief Deputy Mike Haley.

Haley said that WPSO Det. Chad Cassard determined their location and arrested them on River Road.

Roger Dale Collier Jr., 41, and Sara Ashley Adams, 32, were arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail on theft charges before being transferred to the Bogalusa City Jail.

Haley said that Collier has a previous stay in the Washington Parish Jail. In 2013, he was booked on charges of possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possessing illegal drugs with a weapon present, use of illegal drugs in the presence of a juvenile and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Adams has two previous arrests, Haley said. In 2008, she was arrested for possession of illegal drugs. In 2009, she was arrested on charges of obtaining possession of illegal drugs by fraud and theft.

“We are always willing to assist our law enforcement partners with the Bogalusa Police Department,” Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said. “Thanks, Detective Cassard, for locating these two and taking them into custody.”
