Shortly before midnight on October 12, 2020, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Jay
Dupre was on criminal patrol on Highway 439 when he witnessed the driver of a vehicle intentionally throwing litter out of the car. He stopped the vehicle and encountered two persons whom he arrested after finding illegal drugs. Donnie Caine Magee, age 41 and a resident of Otto Passman Road, and Kimberly Haley Davis, age 40 and a resident of Bush, were arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail.
Magee was booked on charges of possession of illegal drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, intentional littering and failure to appear in court. Davis was booked on two charges of possession of illegal drugs.
Magee has a long history of incarceration in Washington Parish with charges of aggravated battery, driving while intoxicated, second degree battery, possession of illegal drugs, introducing drugs into a correctional facility, being a fugitive from Louisiana Probation and Parole, domestic abuse with strangulation, simple battery, and contempt of court.
Davis has two previous arrests in Washington Parish with charges of obstruction of justice and possession of stolen property.
“Thanks, Sergeant Dupre, for your alert law enforcement,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Even a non-violent offense such as intentional littering often leads to the discovery of more serious offenses. That was the case in this arrest and that is why our officers are always proactive as they patrol our parish, twenty-four hours per day.”
