Covington Man Jailed in Washington Parish

Timothy T. Rodosta (43), a resident of Adolphus Road in Covington, has been in the Washington
Parish Jail since his arrest on January 24, 2019. Rodosta is charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a firearm with illegal drugs present, attempted armed robbery, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and being a fugitive from St. Tammany Parish.

The arrest was the result of an alert Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol sergeant who spotted Rodosta behaving in a suspicious manner in the parking lot of a gasoline station south of Bogalusa. When Sgt. Jay Dupre approached Rodosta to question him about his suspicious behavior, he observed drug paraphernalia in plain view inside Rodosta’s vehicle.

After obtaining permission from Rodosta to search his vehicle, Sgt. Dupre discovered a pistol and black gloves. In addition, Rodosta was wearing a black stocking on his head which seemed suspicious. Examination of the stocking revealed hand-cut holes for a person’s eyes and mouth.

Rodosta was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail with his bond set at $150,000. If he is released on bond, he will be transported to the St. Tammany Parish Jail to face charges there.

“Excellent, pro-active law enforcement,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “It seems likely that Sgt. Dupre prevented a possible robbery. I congratulate him for being alert and for handling this matter .”
