SHERIFF’S OFFICE ARRESTS TWO ON MULTIPLE CHARGES
An investigation by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives and patrol officers resulted in the January 17th arrests of two Bogalusa residents on multiple charges of forgery, identity theft, bank fraud and theft.
David Hill, 32, a resident of Sabine Street, and Lisa Ann Davis-Jefferson 43, a resident of Madison Street, were arrested for 23 counts of forgery, 23 counts of identity theft, 23 counts of bank fraud, and theft. In addition, Hill, who is being held on a $15,500 bond, is charged with contempt of court. Davis-Jefferson also remains in jail with her bond set at $15,000.
The investigation began after a parish man reported that his business banking check book had been stolen from his work vehicle. Once the suspects had been identified, Detective Kody Glenn, along with Patrol Sergeant Charlie Easterling and Deputy John Tullos, were able to locate and arrest Hill and Davis-Jefferson.
The investigation continues and it is anticipated that other arrests will be made.
“There is no doubt,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal, “that the quick arrests of Hill and Davis-Jefferson prevented additional crimes against other Washington Parish residents. I congratulate our officers for their excellent work in this matter.”
