Shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday (March 2, 2024) night, a criminal patrol deputy with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s 4th District, stopped a 2020 Chrysler 300 near the intersection of Highway 21 and Highway 59 in Covington after observing the driver violating various traffic laws.

Seated in the rear seat of the vehicle was Jimmerious Smith, who was wanted in connection with a shooting that occurred January 11, 2024 outside Bogalusa High School. Smith was wanted via a full extradition warrant from Bogalusa Police Department for Attempted Second Degree Murder, Illegal Use of Weapons, Aggravated Criminal Damage and Possession of a Firearm in a Firearm Free Zone.

Smith initially refused to give the STPSO deputy his name and, therefore, was also arrested for Failure to Identify. He was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center.

The driver was cited for the traffic violations and released.

A concealed firearm, believed to be connected to the crime scene in Bogalusa, was seized from Smith's person during the traffic stop.

“We are sending a strong message; St. Tammany Parish is no place for criminals to hide,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “If you are wanted in another jurisdiction and you are found in St. Tammany Parish, we will arrest you.”
