Six suspects sought in ‘Operation No Show’

Advocate staff report

Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies are looking for two women and four men in the “Operation No Show” warrant roundup initiative.

Chief Criminal Deputy Tony Bacala said the Sheriff’s Office continues its efforts to deploy extra deputies in the parish to arrest people failing to appear in court after being arrested on felony criminal charges.

Most people arrested on criminal charges are entitled to a bail, he said. After meeting the requirement of that bail, the people are released from jail and given notice to be in court on a specific date, he said.

The following suspects ignored their court their date which subsequently lead to a bench warrant being issued by the court for failure to appear in court:

Anyone with information is asked to call the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office at (225) 621-4636. They also may call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
