Ascension Parish, la — Ascension Parish Major Kevin Hanna reports the Sheriff’s Office is continuing its efforts in the parish to arrest individuals that are failing to appear in court after being arrested on felony and misdemeanor criminal charges. The ongoing initiative is “OPERATION NO SHOW.”
Persons who are arrested on criminal charges are entitled to a bond. Upon bonding from jail the individual is given notice to be in court on a specific date. The following individuals ignored their court date which subsequently led to a bench warrant being issued by the court for failure to appear in court:
David Lee Scott, 56, of Prairieville is wanted on a felony bench warrant (two counts of entry of inhabited dwelling).
Castillo Castellanos, 30, of Gonzales is wanted on a felony bench warrant (sexual battery).
Jesse Blakeman, 20, of 12533 Laurel Ridge, St. Amant is wanted on a felony bench warrant (simple burglary).
Cody Greer, 23, of Prairieville is wanted on a felony bench warrant (possession of schedule II CDS and possession of marijuana).
Quita Franklin, 35, of Donaldsonville is wanted on a felony bench warrant (unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and illegal possession of stolen firearms).
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office at (225) 621-INFO (4636) or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP (7867).
