FRANKLIN PARISH SHERIFF’S OFFICE NARCOTICS INVESTIGATION YIELDS EIGHTY-FOUR ARREST WARRANTS Franklin Parish Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division issued eighty-four arrest warrants for forty-nine individuals early Monday morning as the result of "Operation How DARE You." These warrants are the result of a multi-month investigation by this office into narcotic trafficking. Numerous individuals are in custody and we expect to arrest those remaining soon. Of the individuals charged, fourteen are currently active on probation or parole from previous arrests. Bonds range from $15,000.00 to $125,000.00. “This investigation is part of our ongoing effort to disrupt narcotic activity in the parish,” stated Cobb. As in previous investigations resulting in several arrests, the charges range from distribution of synthetic cannabinoid, to distribution of methamphetamine, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, marijuana and various prescription medication. The charges result in drugs being seized through the operation and removed from our streets. Sheriff Cobb states, “our narcotics investigations are always ongoing. We expect numerous additional arrests will occur throughout the next several months.” The list of those charged will be released soon.

As the school year comes to a close, we are excited to have graduated near 350 students from our DARE Program. DARE stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. In Franklin Parish we teach DARE to fifth grade students at Baskin School, Crowville School, Family Community Christian School, Franklin Academy, Fort Necessity School, Gilbert School and Winnsboro Elementary School. The mission of DARE is teaching students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives. DARE is not only about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. It also educates students on bullying, school safety, respect for self and others and other ways to be safe. Congratulations to the 2018 DARE classes. We hope that the lessons you learned will stay with you for a lifetime! Thank you to each school for giving us the time to share this important program! Photos are attached with students and teachers from each school. Also in many of the photos are Sheriff Kevin Cobb and Sgt. Bill Hendrix, DARE facilitator.

It was an honor to be with Trooper Bobby Smith's family, along with Colonel Reeves and staff at the highway dedication on US 425, Louisiana Highway 15, in Chase, LA. Thirty-two years ago Trooper Smith was involved in an encounter. As a result, he lost his vision. Trooper Smith turned that situation into something that has inspired others, especially those wearing the badge. He passed away in 2016. It will be an honor to work the highway that is dedicated in his name.

The Franklin Parish Sheriff's Office is working an alleged threat made to Fort Necessity School. The Sheriff's Office is working closely with school officials on this matter. A threat was made via text message and the school will remain on lockdown for the remainder of the day. If a parent desires to check their child out they can do so, per school officials.
