News release from the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office
Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Haughton man and wife were arrested Saturday evening for child desertion, possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of minors, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Charles Arthur Davis, III, 31, and Jennifer Ritter-Davis, 31, both of the 600 block of Chandler Road, were taken into custody after a Bossier Sheriff's deputy was dispatched to I-20 in response to a 911 call concerning two children on the road. After finding the children within 75 feet of I-20 and approximately 500 yards from their home, the deputy escorted the kids to their residence. Both parents identified the children, ages 3 and 6, as theirs, and both said they did not know the children were gone. They admitted the children had wandered off.
During a search of the residence, deputies recovered one meth pipe and one baggie containing meth residue.
The parents were transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and booked. Their bonds were set at $6,000 each.
