Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact Homicide Detective Thomas Gai at 504-364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS.

May 27, 2014 | Posted in: Breaking News
Chief Tim Lentz announces that on Friday, May 23, 2014 at approximately 3:10 PM, the Covington Police Department received a complaint in reference to a juvenile being punched from behind. The juvenile was on his way home from the library at approximately 1:30 PM, and was near the intersection of W 27th Ave & N Pierce St. He was approached from behind by two black males, one of which struck him in the face, breaking his jaw. The black males were described as being around junior high school age with military style haircuts. One was wearing a maroon shirt and khaki shorts with a black backpack, the other wearing a white shirt and maroon shorts. There was no communication between the victim and the perpetrators, nor does the victim know their identity. This appears to be an isolated incident and the Covington Police Department Investigations Division is actively working the case. If anyone has information related to this incident, please call the Covington Police Department at (985)892-8500, or CrimeStoppers at (504)822-1111.

DEA National Prescription Drug take back

DEA National Prescription Drug take back

October 22, 2013 | Posted in: Breaking News
DEA HOLDS PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE-BACK EVENT OCTOBER 26, 2013 NEW ORLEANS, LA – With public participation at an all-time high after six prior events in three years, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and its national, tribal, and community partners will hold a seventh National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at thousands of sites across America on Saturday the 26th. These Take Back Days give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. Collection sites are open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. However, DEA cannot accept liquids or needles. Prescription drugs that languish in medicine cabinets create a public health and safety concern because they are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high; almost twice as many Americans (6.8 million) currently abuse prescription drugs than the number of those abusing cocaine, hallucinogens, heroin, and inhalants combined, according to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Americans participating in DEA's six previous Take-Back Days turned in nearly 2.8 million pounds— almost 1,409 tons—of prescription drugs, most recently at more than 5,800 sites operated by over 4,300 of DEA's law enforcement partners. New Orleans Field Division Acting Special Agent in Charge Joseph W. Shepherd stated, "The proliferation of prescription drug abuse in this country is out of control. We as Americans need to do our part to prevent unwanted or unused prescription drugs from getting into the wrong hands. We urge our citizens, faith based groups, and community and civic partners to join us in this effort." The D... » Read More
