On Wednesday (March 30), a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office patrol deputy responded to a report of a vehicle being driven in a reckless manner.  He was able to locate and stop the vehicle as it approached the intersection of Washington and Main in Franklinton.
The driver, James Dutruch, 39, a resident of Otis Jenkins Road, was found to be in possession of three types of illegal drugs.  He was booked into the Washington Parish Jail on two counts of possession of illegal drugs, possession of illegal drugs with intent to distribute, having no driver’s license and a traffic offense.  His bond was set at $10,000.
Dutruch has a previous arrest in 2020.  At that time he was charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of illegal drugs and careless operation of a motor vehicle.
“An impaired driver has no business behind the wheel,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal.  “I am grateful to the concerned citizen who reported him and to our deputy who was able to take him from behind the wheel.”
