Washington Parish Man Charged With Burglary

Joseph Harper, age 19 and a resident of Highway 62, is in the Washington Parish Jail on charges of burglary of an inhabited dwelling and contempt of court. His bond is set at $11,000.

On September 21, 2021 a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to a residence on Gene Williams Road in reference to a complaint. He discovered that Harper had made entry into the residence through a bedroom window. When confronted by the homeowner, he left and apparently took the victim’s debit card which later was used for online purchases.

On September 29, 2021 a Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant received information that Harper was in the area of Gene Williams Road and Squirrel Alley driving a vehicle with a Mississippi license plate. The Lieutenant spotted the vehicle and then located Harper inside a nearby residence. Harper was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail for booking.

Harper has a record of one previous arrest in Washington Parish. In November 2020, he was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, battery of a dating partner and criminal damage to property. After spending six days in jail, he was released on a $30,000 bond.

“Young Mr. Harper is paving a treacherous road for himself,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Unless he turns his life around quickly, he might be destined for a lifetime of arrests and incarcerations. I congratulate our patrol deputy and Lieutenant for investigating this case, following up and making the arrest. Good job, men!
