On Wednesday (June 23, 2021), a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy responded to Highway 21 south of Angie to investigate a report of a stolen vehicle being in the area. The deputy located 30 year-old Malachi K. Campbell, who gave his address as Cable Street in Baton Rouge. Campbell was in possession of the stolen vehicle and inside the vehicle was a 9mm semi-automatic pistol belonging to Campbell.
Campbell, a convicted felon, was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where he was booked on charges of theft of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling and simple battery with injury.
“Once again our officer made a good arrest and was able to get the vehicle back to the rightful owner,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “An arrest without incident is always a good arrest.”
