On March 28, Deborah Stockstill, 18, a resident of Robert Sumrall Road, was arrested by detectives with the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force. After being stopped for committing traffic offenses, Stockstill gave permission for officers to search her vehicle.

During the search, officers discovered a quantity of methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Stockstill was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail on charges of possession of illegal drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and traffic offenses.

She has two previous arrests in Washington Parish, both occurring in late 2022. In those two arrests, she was charged with various criminal violations, including attempted second degree murder, possession of illegal drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, criminal trespass, criminal damage to property, resisting an officer with force, domestic abuse and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

“Stockstill obviously has not embarked on a healthy and productive lifestyle,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “She has established a criminal record early in her life and now is the time for her to turn her life in the opposite direction. I hope and pray she is willing to do that.”
