From the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office
On Thursday Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy Dalton Manning was patrolling on Highway 10 when he noticed a vehicle being driven in an unsafe manner.
He stopped the vehicle and discovered the driver, Briasia McGee, 21, a resident of Trappers Road in Independence was wanted by the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office on outstanding warrants.
Deputy Manning issued traffic citations to McGee, then arrested her and transported her to the Washington Parish Jail. After being booked as a fugitive, McGee was transferred to the Tangipahoa Parish Jail to face charges there.
“Once again,” said Sheriff Randy Seal, “an alert deputy was able to make a good arrest. We are always pleased to partner with our neighboring parishes and assist them in any manner we can. They do the same for us. Those who are trying to escape the law will eventually be caught. Our deputies remain vigilant at all times and constantly patrol our highways, even when most of us are in our homes asleep. I am so grateful for all they do for all the citizens of Washington Parish.”
