On Tuesday (October 13, 2020), Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives Raymond Myers and Chad Cassard were traveling south on Sullivan Drive in Bogalusa when they observed a vehicle with an expired license tag being driven in a careless manner. After a short pursuit, the vehicle finally stopped on Highway 21 near the former Fury automobile dealership. The driver was issued a citation for an expired license plate and improper lane use.
One of the passengers was arrested. Tammy L. Ramp, age 59 a resident of Highway 60 west of Bogalusa, was found to be in possession of heroin. She was transported to the Washington Parish Jail where she was booked on charges of possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $3,500.
Ramp has a previous arrest in Washington Parish. In September 2013, she was arrested and jailed on charges of driving while intoxicated and possession of illegal drugs.
“The possession of heroin,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal, “is an indication of a more serious problem and any amount heroin in our parish is always a threat to everyone. Great job, detectives!
