Yesterday (March 13, 2022) while on criminal patrol in Bogalusa, two Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies made contact with Quincy Forbes, age 37 and a resident of Mitchell Road. Forbes was in possession of marijuana, methamphetamine and suspected crack cocaine. In addition, he had a fully loaded .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol and a fully loaded spare magazine in a pants pocket.
Forbes, a convicted felon, was arrested and booked into the Washington Parish Jail charged with possession of illegal drugs, possession of illegal drugs with a weapon present, possession of illegal drugs in the presence of a juvenile and being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. His bond was set at $50,000.
Forbes has previous incarcerations in Washington Parish beginning in 2008 that have included charges of possession of illegal drugs, resisting arrest by flight, numerous traffic violations, burglary, possession of stolen property (2 counts), failure to appear in court (4 counts), theft, criminal trespass, and armed robbery.
“This is yet another example of the danger law enforcement officers face daily in the performance of their duties,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “When a convicted felon carries a fully loaded pistol and additional ammunition in his pocket, one can only assume his intentions are not honorable. I am pleased our officers were able to make the arrest without incident.”
