On Monday (February 7, 2022), agents with the Louisiana Division of Probation and Parole were in pursuit of William Brock McCrory, age 42 and a resident of Carolina Avenue in Bogalusa. When confronted by the agents at a Franklinton business, McCrory fled on foot and was captured by an agent near a fast food establishment.
Detectives with the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force were summoned to the scene due to narcotics in McCrory’s possession. McCrory’s car, which was in the parking lot when he fled on foot, was searched and detectives discovered a varied assortment of illegal narcotics, including heroin, methamphetamine and two brands of narcotic pills.
McCrory was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail. He was booked on four counts of possession with intent to distribute illegal drugs, resisting an officer with force and resisting an officer by flight on foot.
McCrory has at least six previous stays in the Washington Parish Jail since 2017 on charges for possession of illegal drugs (7 counts), possession of drug paraphernalia (8 counts), possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute (3 counts), resisting an officer (4 counts), several traffic offenses, possession of heroin, distribution of illegal drugs, theft, contempt of court, failure to appear in court, criminal trespass, burglary and obstruction of justice.
“Mr. McCrory’s lifestyle involving illegal drugs speaks for itself,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Once again, our officers partnered with another agency to get more illegal drugs out of our community. I am so appreciative of the wonderful Probation and Parole agents who work hard in Washington Parish to monitor persons who are under supervision. They are a great asset to local law enforcement.”
