The driver, Kevin P. Mizell (48), a resident of West 7th Street in Bogalusa, had an outstanding warrant for contempt of court. He was transported to the Sheriff’s Office in Bogalusa for processing. When Mizell was exiting the Sheriff’s patrol vehicle at the Sheriff’s Office, he dropped a pill container to the ground and attempted to kick it under the car. Deputy Cassard retrieved the pill container and discovered it contained heroin and a small quantity of illegal narcotic pills.
Mizell was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail early Tuesday morning (October 22, 2019) charged with possession of heroin, possession of illegal drugs, contempt of court and careless operation of a motor vehicle with accident. His bond was set at $5,250 and he was released later in the day after posting bond.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “Deputy Cassard stepped up to the plate on this one and was able to remove heroin and other drugs out of our community. I commend him for a job well done.”
