“We have a great partnership with federal agents in our local Drug Enforcement Administration office,” Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said. “By combining resources and personnel, our two agencies are able to identify and arrest drug dealers throughout the parish. These arrests do not signal the end of the investigation. More arrests can be expected as the investigation continues. My thanks to all officers who risk their lives daily as they protect law-abiding citizens of our parish.”
