Yesterday (March 15, 2021, a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy responded to a complaint at a residence on Highway 436 and found 23 year-old Tristen Jenkins to be in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
Jenkins was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. He has five previous arrests in Washington Parish on charges of failure to appear in court, theft, criminal damage to property, and five counts of contempt of court.
“It is never a good idea to ignore judicial orders,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “It’s like thumbing your nose at the court, and such gestures are never taken lightly. I suggest that Mr. Jenkins address not only his drug issues, but also his lack of responsibility.”
