Bogalusa: Domestic Disturbance Results in Numerous Charges

On Sunday, June 3, 2018 Bogalusa Police Department officers responded to a report from a female that her boyfriend had struck her in the face and was attempting to remove her from the residence in the 300 block of White Street. Officers arrived and knocked on the door but didn’t get a response. Officers could smell the odor of burnt marijuana while standing outside the door of the residence. After repeated knocking on the door and several minutes, the boyfriend of the victim, identified as Demaine M. Washington (36) of Bogalusa came to the door, stepped outside, and immediately shut and locked the door. Washington denied that the female victim was in the house but gave permission for the officers to enter the residence.
Once inside the residence, officers observed in plain view razor blades with cigars that had been cut open and the tobacco removed, which is commonly replaced with marijuana. While looking for the female victim, officers went to the bathroom and observed the toilet lid open with remnants of a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana still present in the bowl. Officers checked the kitchen area for the victim and located a rifle lying on the floor in plain view. Lying next to the rifle was a box that contained multiple loaded magazines for the rifle, loose ammunition, a handgun, a bullet proof vest and digital scales which is commonly use for the sale of drugs. Officers learned that Washington was a convicted felon. A small coin purse was located that contained a plastic bag with several pills that were identified as Oxycodone  Hydrochloride. Also inside the coin purse was six smaller plastic bags that contained suspected cocaine.
Washington was booked on the charges of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Illegal Carrying of a Firearm While in Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, Resisting an Officer, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession of Schedule II drugs (2 counts), Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Unlawful use of Body Armor, Obstruction of Justice and a Probation and Parole Hold.
