Grayson Police Department News

Roo, the kangaroo, has escaped his habitat while it was being enlarged. If anyone sees him, contact 318-372-7140 or CPSO at 649-2345.

On November 5, 2018, Grayson police received a report from a father who was receiving messages from a 59-year-old man in West Monroe. The father believed that the messages were intended for his 16-year-old daughter, who was his profile picture. Grayson police initiated an investigation, and on November 6, 2018, they arrested Rickey L Grant, of West Monroe, as he arrived at a location he had chosen to meet the underage victim. Grant brought numerous items to the victim, including alcoholic beverages, marijuana, and a pizza. He admitted that he was aware the victim was 16 years old and that he knew it was wrong. At the time of his arrest, he questioned officers as to “why they would do this to him.” Grant was charged with one count Computer Aided Solicitation of a Minor, 1 count Possession of Marijuana, and 1 count Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. More charges are possible as the investigation progresses. Chief Mitch Bratton wants to thank Caldwell Parish Sheriffs Department, the 37th JDC District Attorneys Office, and the Office of the Louisiana Attorney General High Tech Crime Unit for their assistance. Grayson Police are the lead agency in the investigation, which is ongoing. Chief Bratton States “It is a positive moment when local and state agencies can join together to protect our children. I appreciate the assistance provided by Sheriff Clay Bennett, District Attorney Brian Frazier, and Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Office.

Tornado warning in effect until 6:15 pm

A tornado watch is in effect for Caldwell Parish until 11 pm. We will try to keep you updated as the situation changes.

Make plans to attend this event!

We ask that you remember the family of retired Franklin Parish Sheriff Eugene Parker in your prayers. Sheriff Parker was a fixture in area law enforcement for several decades, and his accomplishments have left a lasting mark in the area.

We are currently under a Tornado Watch. At this time, the tornadic activity that was seen in Lasalle Parish does not appear to be moving into our area. While this can change at any minute, we appear in the clear for now. GPD, as well as Caldwell Parish Sheriff's Office is out and monitoring the situation.

We want to remind everyone to be safe tonight! Watch out for children and cars slowing to stop at houses. Do not go to unfamiliar houses, and report any suspicious behavior to GPD or CPSO dispatch. Be safe and have fun!

Chief Bratton found Officer Brynlee making sure that “Roo” didn’t escape again! After Roo’s adventure a few months back, he’s apparently been labeled a flight risk and has to have an escort! 😂😂 Also, congrats to Brynlee for winning 1st place in her age division at the Witch Way to Main costume contest!

It’s always great seeing all the costumes at Goblins! It makes all of the hard work worth it!

Sign up sheets for the Grayson Christmas parade will be available this week! On December 8, Join us for an all day event in Thurman Park, with vendors, food trucks, and more, then enjoy our night time parade.

Tonight is our annual Goblins in the Park celebration for residents of Caldwell parish. Due to the high number of pedestrian traffic in the area of Thurman Park, we will be closing Louisiana Highway 850 at Highway 165 and also at Broadway Street. We will not allow any through traffic after 3 PM. For those attending goblins, parking is available at Grayson town hall and Grayson elementary school, with a complementary shuttle provided by the Grayson police department to and from the park. We will open the gate to the park at 6 PM. We look forward to seeing everyone there!

Thanks to Perrin’s Island Lodge for hosting local law enforcement leaders for an excellent meal tonight! Chief Bratton enjoyed visiting with Lt. Governor Billy Nungesser and Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain, as well as area sheriff’s, at the beautiful, new lodge.

Thank you so much to OBCA 4-H for the treats that were brought by the police department! Old Bethel Christian Academy

Try it! It really works!

We have received multiple calls this morning regarding a low flying helicopter. There is no public safety issue, and while we have not communicated with the pilot, it appears it is involved in mosquito eradication.
