FRANKLINTON, La. – Deputy Blaine Polk of the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Bible Baptist Church at 6:36 PM on March 2, after receiving several distressing 911 calls from Crescent Vogt, a local woman with a history of drug-induced false reports.

Vogt, born October 30, 1983, called 911 six times seeking help to find her aunt and claiming she was being pursued. Upon arrival, Deputy Polk traced the calls to the church’s parsonage, where Vogt had seemingly barricaded herself.

Despite numerous orders to come out, Vogt remained inside, leading Polk and Deputy Justin McFarlain to enter with a church member’s consent. Inside, they found Vogt on the ground, armed with knives, defying police commands.

The deputies detained Vogt after a struggle, finding a hypodermic needle in her purse. She confessed to using it for heroin. Vogt now faces charges for false emergency communications, aggravated burglary, resisting an officer, and possession of drug paraphernalia. This incident marks her 15th arrest since 2007 in Washington Parish.

Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal commended the deputies for their professional conduct, highlighting the importance of community safety. The incident serves as a reminder for citizens to use 911 responsibly, avoiding false reports that can lead to severe legal consequences.
