Man arrested, charged with two violation of protection orders

Ruston Police officers were dispatched to Arlington Street on Feb. 10 in reference of a protection order violation. 

The female who called stated that Edwin Mays, 38, of Ruston, contacted her mother on the phone asking about the female. She provided the RPD officer with a screenshot of a text message in which Mays asked the mother to talk to him about the female. 

The timestamp on the text message was around lunch time. Another officer had taken a similar complaint the previous day in reference to Mays who was driving around the residence on Arlington Street.

The RPD officer contacted Mays at his residence, who admitted to having driven past the female’s residence and contacting her mother. Mays was arrested and charged with two counts of violation of a protection order.
