Both Brumfield and Easterling have previous arrests and stays in the Washington Parish Jail. Brumfield’s previous arrests were for distribution of illegal drugs and possession of stolen property. Easterling’s previous arrests were for failure to honor written promises and failure to appear in court.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “The best place for thieves is inside the Washington Parish Jail. I commend Lt. Hickman for his initial work on this case and our detectives for their persistence in identifying and arresting the thieves. This is another case of observant neighbors and law enforcement officers working together to solve a crime. This situation brings to mind an old song from the late 1950’s, the title of which was Get A Job. That is exactly what I recommend for these thieves.”
