CPSO Deputies Arrest Man for Introduction of Contraband into a Prison At approximately 7:30 pm on January 8, 2017, CPSO deputies received a call from the Concordia Parish Work Release Facility on Highway 84 in Vidalia stating that someone had been seen throwing contraband over the fence of the Work Release Facility. When deputies arrived on the scene, they noticed a vehicle parked on the levee behind the work release facility. The deputies questioned the driver of the vehicle and found that he had no driver’s license. During the questioning the driver admitted to throwing a bag over the fence into the yard of the facility, but stated that the bag contained only tobacco. When deputies retrieved the bag from the work release facility they discovered that it contained several packets of tobacco, two cell phones, amounts of marijuana, powder cocaine, suboxone, and methamphetamine. The driver of the vehicle, Curtis Washington, and a female passenger in the vehicle were detained and taken to the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office for questioning. Based on witness statements and the contraband recovered at the scene, Curtis Washington, age 36, address 303 Back Prodecep Road, Schriever, LA was booked into the Concordia Parish Jail on charges of introduction of contraband into a penal institute, possession of schedule I drugs with intent to distribute, possession of schedule II drugs with intent to distribute, possession of schedule III drugs with intent to distribute, and is held on a warrant from another law enforcement agency. Chief Deputy David Hedrick commended the deputies for their good work in this case. “I want to thank our deputies for their good work in this case. The use of illegal drugs is an ongoing problem and we will remain vigilant in our efforts to stop the manufacture, transportation, and distribution of illegal drugs in Concordia Parish.”
