Sex offenders arrested in roundup

VIDALIA — The Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office teamed up with the U.S. Marshal’s Service Friday to arrest six people violating the state’s sex offender registration law.

Kadarrian R. Frazier, 29, 808 Louisiana Ave.; Ferriday, Doris J. Brown, 44, 200 Smith Lane, Ferriday; Willie Thomas III, 31, 509 S. Spruce, Vidalia; Kerry A. Pamplin, 49, 230 Loomis Addition, Clayton; Dale R. Williams, 50, 110 Griffin, St. Clayton and Merritt J. Ford, 55, 506 Miller St., Vidalia were all charged with failure to register as a sex offender.

Eric W. Heilig, 21, 1223 Apple St., Vidalia, also turned himself in to authorities earlier in the week for violating the registration law.

According to Louisiana law, any person who has pleaded guilty to or been found convicted of sex-related crimes must register with the sheriff’s office or local police department in the area where they reside.

Sheriff Randy Maxwell said sex offenders must realize they have to register or they will go back to jail.

“They have to register with law enforcement, notify their neighbors of their address and advertise in the local newspaper. They are informed of this when they are convicted,” he said. “I would encourage anyone who needs to register with the sheriff’s office to do so before a warrant is issued for their arrest.”

Before the day was over, the combined team of CPSO officers and U.S. Marshals had also arrested five parish residents on various drug charges.

Anwan O. Ceasor, 32, 152 Doty Garden Circle, Ferriday, was charged with possession of schedule I drugs, convicted felon in possession of firearm, carrying of weapons and possession of CDS drugs.

Woody L. Wagley, 33, 302 Lynn Haven Drive, Ferriday, was charged with possession of marijuana and a warrant for another agency.

Benjamin T. Brewer, 33, 241 Grayson Road, Clayton, was charged with possession of schedule II drugs.

Stephen R. Hinton, 29, 702 Virginia Ave., Ferriday, was charged with possession of schedule II drugs, possession of schedule IV drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Terrell L. Harbor, 29, 201 Skipper Drive, Ferriday, was charged with possession of schedule I drugs, possession of schedule II drugs, flight from an officer and obstruction of justice.
