On May 25, 2021, a detective with the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force was patrolling inside the Town of Franklinton when he encountered a driver committing traffic violations. Once he stopped the vehicle, he discovered the driver, 27 year old Jamal M. Abron, a resident of Lenora Street, did not have a valid driver’s license. That was the least of Abron’s concerns.
Other detectives arrived on the scene and conducted a search of Abron’s vehicle. The search revealed a large quantity of illegal pills broken down into smaller bags for sale. Abron was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail charged with possession of illegal drugs and traffic offenses. In addition, it was discovered he had an outstanding warrant from the 22nd Judicial District Court.
Sheriff Randy Seal commented. “Possess or sell illegal drugs, and you are destined for a trip to jail when we catch you. I am so grateful for the constant vigilance of our narcotics detectives as they roam throughout the parish on the lookout for illegal drug activity.”
