Mt. Hermon Burglars Captured

In mid-March, the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office requested the public’s help in identifying two
persons who attempted to burglarize a residence on Old Lake Road in Mt. Hermon.  As a result of tips from the public and good detective work, Adrian McGee (29) was arrested March 19, 2018 and Entre D. Dillon (31) was arrested April 28, 2018, both charged with criminal trespass and attempted burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
McGee also faces charges from previous warrants for possession of schedule three drugs, introduction of contraband to a penal institute and two counts of failure to appear in court.  McGee has been in the Washington Parish Jail twice before on charges of issuing worthless checks, failure to appear, shoplifting, criminal trespass, and failure to honor written Promise. Dillon has been in the Washington Parish Jail on nine previous occasions on charges that include being from another jurisdiction, possession of marijuana, domestic battery, obstruction of justice, cruelty to a juvenile, resisting an officer by flight, simple battery, contempt of court, burglary of an inhabited dwelling, criminal damage and failure to appear in court.
“Three key elements led to the capture of these two thieves,” said Sheriff Randy Seal.  “First was the homeowner’s surveillance system that provided good images of the two intruders.  Next was information provided by honest citizens.  The third was the diligence of our detectives who quickly identified the thieves and stayed on the case until they were in custody.  This is another good outcome for honest homeowners.”
