|Grand Jury to continue Ferriday Police Department probe in February|
On February 6th, the Concordia Parish Grand Jury will continue its investigation into alleged misconduct within the Ferriday Police Department.
Dist. Atty. John Johnson subpoenaed 12 individuals late Tuesday afternoon to appear before the panel.
Twenty-six persons -- including police officers from Adams County, Concordia and Catahoula parishes and the Louisiana State Police -- were subpoenaed to appear before the Grand Jury on October 1 concerning this matter.
The term of the Grand Jury hearing the case was scheduled to expire October 8, but Judge Kathy Johnson granted a motion by the District Attorney to extend the jury's service for "a period not to exceed one year."
Grand juries typically served six months.
Johnson said today (Wednesday) he could not comment on the Grand Jury probe and said Grand Jury members have also been instructed not to discuss the matter.
The Sentinel has learned that the Grand Jury is investigating a number of complaints lodged against the Ferriday Police Department concerning a variety of matters including civil rights, towing issues, arrest tactics, alleged false arrests and bond postings.
Johnson filed subpoenas Tuesday for the following:
Ferriday police officer John Hawkins; Shana Pearson Landry of Newellton (to have Hagan Landry and Brennan Landry before the Grand Jury); Leslie Parker and Wendy Lancaster, both of Ferriday, Concordia Parish deputies John Mott and Shea Hudnall; New Orleans Police Department Officer Stephen Lipsomb; Vidalia Police Chief Billy Hammers; Natchez Police Department Investigator Tom Grinnell; and Catahoula Parish Sheriff's Deputy Rob Polk.
