Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office Major Kevin Hanna reports the 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:

Matthew Collins, 37, of 2321 Ellis Merchant Road, Moss Point, Mississippi, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for possession of alcohol in vehicle, possession of CDS I, improper brake lights, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Nathaniel Hill, 21, of 18261 Muddy Creek Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for illegal possession of stolen things and felony theft.

Daniel Williams, 40, of 18332 Eldon Street, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for possession of CDS IV, resisting an officer, and possession of marijuana.

Robert Duncan, 32, of 17538 Joe Sevario Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for aggravated domestic abuse assault and aggravated assault with a firearm.

Charles Babylon, 60, of 18681 Blythe Road, Prairieville, is wanted on a felony bench warrant for unauthorized use of a movable.

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