Brent Crain Captured After Vehicle Accident, Escape, and Foot Pursuit - Jailed for 12th Time Since 2007

Tuesday (May 7, 2024), at approximately 4:00 PM, the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a vehicle accident on Highway 38. Deputy Brown arrived at the scene to find property damage and several light poles affected by the incident. Brent Crain, age 40 and a resident of Pineview Road in Franklinton, was identified as the cause.

Upon Deputy Brown's arrival, Crain reported the need for medical attention, prompting the dispatch of EMS services. Crain was transported to Riverside Medical Center. However, while in the emergency room, Crain absconded on foot.

The escape prompted the WPSO to alert residents of the East Acres Subdivision of the increased law enforcement presence . Residents were given a description of Crain and advised to lock their home and car doors and contact 911 immediately if they encountered Crain. 


After nearly five hours, Crain was apprehended by Reserve Franklinton Police Officer Brock. Officer Brock noticed Crain behaving suspiciously while the officer was pumping gas at the Chevron gas station on Washington Street. Crain attempted to flee upon being noticed, but Officer Brock successfully took him into custody.

Crain was booked into the Washington Parish Jail at 1:23 AM on May 8, 2024 on the charges of No Insurance, Resisting an Officer (Flight on Foot), Fugitive Other Jurisdiction, Criminal Damage to Property Under 1000, and Criminal Trespass. 

The WPSO report of the incident noted that Crain has been booked into the Washington Parish jail 11 times between 2007 and 2020. Click here for reports of some of those incidents

The WPSO extends its gratitude to the Rayburn Correctional Center and their K-9 tracking unit, as well as the Franklinton Police Department and all deputies involved in Crain's apprehension.
