The Bogalusa Police Department Violent Crimes Task Force was contacted and responded to a residence in the 1500 block of Avenue F. While speaking to a resident, Officers observed Simmons inside the house. When officers attempted to arrest Simmons, she resisted but was quickly taken into custody.
While at the residence officers also identified Christina Marie Long who was found to be wanted out of Covington for Felony Theft. She was also arrested.
A male subject at the residence was questioned. He falsely identified himself, and was released after a warrants check was made with no record on the subject. Later in the day, while working with Covington Detectives, Officers determined that the male subject was actually Drew Preis who is on Felony Parole for multiple drug offenses and wanted for a Parole Violation. Preis was also wanted by the Covington Police Department for Felony Theft. He had since left the residence and Task Force Officers began a search for Preis. He was located in the area of Hwy 60 later in the evening and was also arrested.
All three fugitives were booked into the Bogalusa City Jail, then released to the Covington Police Department. All three have been booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
