“Amazing,” said Sheriff Randy Seal. “No matter how many times we warn drug dealers in Washington Parish that we are coming after them, they continue to ply their trade. Let me assure other drug dealers out there that this will not be our final roundup. We will continue to seek you out and put you in jail. You can run, but you cannot hide. You can slip around under cover of darkness, but eventually we will shine a light on you. Time is on our side and sooner or later we will catch you.”
Sheriff Seal continued, “Congratulations to our wonderful drug task force officers for a job well done and many thanks to the fine officers from the other agencies who work so closely with us. As we combine our respective resources, we are able to do so much more. Thank you for all you do for the honest citizens of Washington Parish.”
