Jail trusty captured after walking off from Washington Parish Jail
WASHINGTON PARISH - A jail trusty who walked off from the Washington Parish Jail Friday night is back in custody.
According to the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office, 30-year-old Timothy John Williams was captured in Bogalusa Saturday night.
Deputies went to a house on Michigan Avenue around 11:00 p.m. after an intense daylong manhunt focused inside the city limits of Bogalusa.
Williams was discovered at the house on Michigan Avenue and initially resisted arrest. However, after a brief struggle, he was taken into custody. Williams was then transported to the Washington Parish Jail.
"This was a very long day for our officers who searched diligently until Williams was captured. I am so grateful that the search and capture ended the way it should have; namely, Williams went back to jail and all of our officers went home to their families," Washington Parish Sheriff Randy Seal said in a press release. "I am so appreciative of the fine work of our officers and am so fortunate to have the privilege of working with them on a daily basis."
