Fleeing suspect caught

A Dubach man was arrested Monday after he fled deputies who were attempting to serve an arrest warrant.

When Lincoln Parish deputies went to a May Road residence Monday to serve a warrant, Louis J. Johnson, 26, fled out the back door. Johnson was wearing a black backpack at the time. He was ordered to stop but continued to flee.

A search was conducted, and a black backpack was found in the woods where Johnson was last seen. The pack contained two large plastic bags of suspected synthetic marijuana and four opened water bottles containing colored liquids mixed with suspected codeine.

Deputies apprehended Johnson nearby. He was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for resisting an officer, possession of a Schedule I controlled substance, and possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance.
