VIDALIA — The search continues for a Monterey man apparently on the run from a jail sentence.

Henry Louis Shavers, 42, of Monterey pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and attempted illegal carrying of weapons in Seventh Judicial District Court in August, and was ordered to report to the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office to start serving his sentence on Nov. 2, according to a news release from the CPSO.

Shavers failed to appear to begin the sentence, which included two concurrent five-year hard labor sentences with the Louisiana Department of Corrections, two concurrent six-month parish prison terms and a two-year hard labor sentence without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence that would run concurrent with the other sentences.
