WPSO and Angie Police Arrest Convicted Felon

On Tuesday (May 12, 2020), Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a
neighborhood west of Angie after reports of a man threatening others with a shotgun. WPSO Patrol Deputy James Gregorio assisted by Angie Officer Dillon Miller encountered Paul L. Dykes (age 58 and a resident of Hideaway Lane), arrested him and placed him in the Washington Parish Jail. Dykes is charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm with a concealed serial number, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of illegal drugs with a weapon present.

After talking with the victims, officers located Dykes sitting on his back porch. He admitted to the threat and was placed under arrest. While searching Dykes, officers discovered a quantity of methamphetamine along with drug paraphernalia. With Dykes’ permission, officers searched his residence and discovered the shotgun which had been used in the threat.

Dykes has a previous arrest in 2012 that led to his status as a convicted felon. In November 2012, he was arrested and charged with four counts of possession of illegal drugs, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of illegal drugs with a weapon present and traffic offenses.

“There is no way to be certain what was going on in his mind,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal, “but it wasn’t good. I appreciate the good work of Deputy Gregorio and the Angie Police Department. Once again, this is a good example of area law enforcement agencies working together for the common good.”
