Drug arrest in Hammond
HAMMOND, La (TPSO) -- Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards reports the following arrest:
Brandon T Johnson, 24, of Robinson Rd. in Hammond, La was arrested and charged with Possession of Marijuana and on one outstanding FTA.
On Dec. 22, 2010, at approximately 1:29 a.m., deputies responded to St Paul Loop in Hammond, LA regarding reports of a disturbance. Upon arriving at the scene, the original complaint advised that she needed medical treatment due to injuries sustained as the result of a battery. Deputies were advised the suspect was sitting in a Red Ford F 250 at the end of the roadway.
As deputies approached the suspect vehicle, they observed a black male standing outside of the Ford. They then observed the male subject enter a nearby residence. Upon gathering information regarding the initial complaint, deputies discovered the black male, later identified as Johnson, did not know the homeowners of the residence and entered the home in efforts to elude arrest. At first, Johnson refused to identify himself to deputies. He was taken into custody at this time inside of the St. Paul Loop residence. During the investigation, deputies also located suspected marijuana wrapped in baggies on the suspect.
Johnson was transported to the Parish Jail where he was booked and charged accordingly. This investigation is pending; additional charges on Johnson may be forthcoming.
