Washington Parish Sheriff's Office Responds to Incident at Bible Baptist Church

On March 2, 2024, at approximately 6:36 PM, Deputy Blaine Polk of the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the Bible Baptist Church following multiple 911 calls from a female, identified as 40 year-old Crescent Vogt.  

Dispatch reported that Vogt had called 911 six times, requesting a ride and assistance in locating her aunt. Additionally, Vogt claimed that individuals were attempting to harm her. It was noted that Vogt has a history of calling 911 while under the influence of drugs and making false reports.

Upon arrival, Deputy Polk discovered that the 911 call was originating from inside the parsonage behind the church. Despite repeated verbal commands to come out and identify herself, the doors were found locked. Further investigation revealed a driver's license belonging to a deceased relative of Vogt, wedged in the door, presumably used to gain unauthorized entry.

A member of the church informed Deputy Polk that no one should have been inside the building at that time. With permission from the church member, Deputy Polk, accompanied by Deputy Justin McFarlain, proceeded to clear the building, announcing their presence loudly as deputies.

During the search, deputies found Vogt lying on the ground in darkness, holding a kitchen knife in one hand and a pocket knife in the other. Despite commands to drop the knives and comply, Vogt resisted, requiring efforts to detain her safely.

Upon inventorying Vogt's belongings, a hypodermic needle was discovered in her purse, which Vogt admitted to using for heroin.

Vogt was subsequently transported to the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office jail and charged with false communications to cause emergency response, aggravated burglary, resisting an officer (two counts), and possession of drug paraphernalia. Vogt's 15th arrest in Washington Parish signals her extensive history of repeat offenses dating back to 2007.

"We commend the swift and professional response of Deputy Polk and Deputy McFarlain in managing this challenging situation," stated Sheriff Randy “Country’ Seal. “The safety and security of our community members, including those experiencing distress, remain our utmost priority."

The Washington Parish Sheriff's Office reminds citizens to use 911 responsibly and refrain from making false reports; as such actions can result in serious consequences.
