.,,L, [.=-[J~UIIrJl!llllll~ jWm'' ,,.v~r,,~-ml,.mw I I 0A THE JENA TIMES OIla-Tullos-Urania Signal WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2008 .000 m; The LaSalle Parish Sher- iffs Department, working with other state and local agencies, continues to arrest individuals for illegal narcot- ics possession and distribu- tion. On Monday of this week, officers from the sheriff's de- partment and Louisiana State Police arrested Lisa Poole Hay, 33, of Jena, on warrants from investigations that occurred in late Decem- ber. Hay was booked into the LaSalle Parish Jail on two counts of possession with intent to distribute CDS II (methamphetamine), one charge from the sheriff's de- partment and another charge from the state police. Both counts originate from narcotics operations that occurred on December 19 and 20, 2007. In one of those events, an undercover narcotics opera- tion with officers from the sheriffs office, state police, and Concordia Parish Sher- iffs Office, allegedly captured Hay selling suspected meth- amphetamine in its "ice" form. The other event involved a traffic stop, where Hay al- legedly threw some 1.5 ounces of suspected ice from her vehicle as she was being stopped by deputies. State police officers said the weight of the suspected methamphetamine had a street value of nearly $50,000 "Again, I can't stress enough how thankful I am that we're all working to- gether," LaSalle Parish Sher- iff-elect and CEO Scott Franklin said of the inter- agency cooperation. '*With all of the police agencies work- ing in harmony and with the public's continued help in giving us vital information, Not The Same... Marcus C. Lee, of Jena, age 28, is not the same Marcus Lee, age 20, arrest- ed and charged in connec- tion with the arson fire at Jena High School. we're making a huge impact on the illegal drug system in our parish." Franklin noted that there is still much work to do but he is confident that the mes- sage of his anti-drug en- forcement program is getting out. "There is no doubt that the drug dealers know we mean business," he said. "My message still remains the same: quite selling or using, move to another par- ish, or go to jail. The decent people of our parish are tired of the illegal drug use and we're going to do everything in our means to stop it." Traffic stop leads to drug arrests On December 29, 2007, a LaSalle Parish Sheriff's Dep- uty stopped a 1993 Toyota Camry on the White Sulphur Springs Road around 10 p.m. for a taillight violation. While talking with the driver, Ashley Bradford, 23, of Jena, the deputy observed someone hiding in the back seat of the vehicle. The dep- uty said that Bradford de- nied any knowledge of any- one in her vehicle and when , the subject was revealed, the officer recognized him as Wil- liam Dale Keene, 31, of Trout. The deputy also knew that Keene had an outstand- ing warrant and placed him immediately under arrest. Bradford was also placed under arrest for obstruction of justice for her attempt to hide the fugitive. In performing the routine inventory search of the vehi- cle prior to it being towed, officers discovered a large quantity of suspected illegal drugs and drug parapherna- lia. In Bradford's opened purse on the front seat, they found a suspected marijuana smoking pipe laying on top. They also found rolling pa- pers in the front seat, digital scales in the back seat, one used syringe with needle in the back seat, a folding mir- ror with white residue in the front door pocket, a black case in the front dash area with two Xanax pills, eight Sonoma 250 pills, two sy- ringes with needles, a bag of very small Ziploc type bags, two baggies of suspected methamphetamine, and a suspected crack pipe in the back seat. Along with the initial charge of obstruction of jus- tice, Bradford was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of CDS I, possession of CDS II, and possession of CDS III. Keene was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of CDS II, and possession of CDS III. Other Arrests Booked into the LaSalle Parish Jail January 7-13 were: Brandy McGee, 17, of Natchitoches, arrested January 7 by the Jena Police Department for theft and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of juveniles. Brianne A. Hudnall, 28, of Jena, arrested January 8 by the LaSalle Parish Sher- iff's Department for posses- sion of drug paraphernalia. Raymond K. Thomas, 37, of Jena, arrested January 9 In Louisiana... The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced changes to the upcoming filing season.

The state also accepts any extension granted by the in- ternal Revenue Service (IRS). The extension should be at- tached to the state return when it is filed. It should be noted that an extension only extends the time to file, not the time to pay any tax. Failure to pay the tax in full by the filing deadline will re- sult in the assessment of in- terest and a penalty.
