The Ascension Parish 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:

Linda Landrum, 47, of Gonzales, wanted on a Felony Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear in Court on Charges of Possession of CDS II, Possession of CDS I, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Tevrion Carter, 20, of Gonzales, is wanted on a Felony Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear in Court on Charges of Possession With Intent to Distribute CDS I, and Resisting an Officer.

Monette Britt, 21, of St. Amant, is wanted on a Felony Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear in Court on Charges of Possession With Intent to Distribute CDS II, Simple Robbery, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession of CDS II.

Travis Collins, 24, of Gonzales, is wanted on a Felony Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear in Court on Charges of Possession With Intent to Distribute CDS I.

Royce Davis, 30, of Gonzales is wanted on a Felony Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear in Court on Charges of Aggravated Burglary, Theft of a Firearm, and Second-Degree Battery.

In an effort to reduce these felony bench warrant numbers, each week the Sheriff’s Office is airing a photograph and name of a person that has failed to appear in court, Wiley said.

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).
