This is Dobson’s third stay in the Washington Parish Jail for drug offenses during Sheriff Seal’s term of office. In 2017, he was arrested two times for drug and weapons offenses. For the first arrest, he remained in jail for two days before being released, and for the second arrest, his jail stay lasted almost five months.
“I clearly remember Dobson’s arrest in October 2017, when our drug task force detectives seized heroin, weapons and cash from him,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “At that time I stated that he did not deserve to roam free in society. I meant those words at that time and I stand by them today. If he had been locked away then as he should have been, he would not have been back on our streets selling drugs again. Combating illegal drugs has always been a priority with me and it always will be. Illegal drugs are destroying the very fabric of our society and I will be relentless in directing our officers to continue to apply pressure to drug dealers throughout Washington Parish.”
