Wanted Fugitive Captured in Washington Parish

Detectives from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office (WPSO) Drug Task Force, in coordination with the U.S. Marshals Service New Orleans Office and the Rayburn Correctional Center K-9 unit, successfully located and apprehended 37 year-old Brent Allen West, who had recently evaded capture in Arkansas and was a wanted fugitive. 

The U.S. Marshals Service New Orleans Office contacted the WPSO Drug Task Force on Tuesday (November 28, 2023) with information regarding the whereabouts of Brent Allen West. West was wanted in Arkansas on multiple charges, including illegal narcotics violations, theft, and was also a registered sex offender who had crossed state lines. Authorities had reason to believe that West had fled to Washington Parish to evade capture.

During the course of the investigation into West's location, it was determined that he was hiding at a residence on Nash Harper Warner Road in Washington Parish. In response to this information, the Rayburn Correctional Center K-9 unit was called in to assist in the operation to capture West. Shortly after 9 PM on Tuesday night, the law enforcement team successfully apprehended Brent Allen West without incident at the Nash Harper Warner Road residence. West was discovered hiding in a bedroom and was taken into custody.

The apprehension of Brent Allen West represents a significant victory for law enforcement agencies committed to ensuring public safety and bringing fugitives to justice. The successful operation demonstrates the dedication and coordination among various agencies in pursuing individuals who pose a threat to communities both locally and across state lines.

“Brent Allen West is now in custody and will be facing the charges against him in Arkansas. I would like to extend my gratitude to our WPSO Drug Task Force, the U.S. Marshals Service New Orleans Office, and the Rayburn Correctional Center K-9 unit for their invaluable assistance in this operation,” stated Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal.
