Later in the day, Sergeant Steve Lang observed a white Toyota SUV in Fred’s parking lot matching the description of the vehicle driven by Cutrer. Cutrer attempted to elude Sgt. Lang by driving out of town across the river bridge. However, Sgt. Lang was able to stop Cutrer and he along with Patrolman Justin Stogner were able to take Cutrer into custody without incident.
Patrolman Justin Stogner charged Cutrer with vehicle burglary (Felony) and possession of drug paraphernalia (Misdemeanor). Cutrer was later booked into the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Jail on the charges Vehicle Burglary, Attachment, Criminal Trespass, and two counts of Contempt of Court.
Chief Justin Brown commends the exemplary work of Sergeant Lang and Patrolman Stogner. Chief Brown would also like to thank the community for continuing to assist the Franklinton Police Department in keeping our community safe.
