A 48-year-old Vinton man, a registered sex offender, has been charged with forcible rape and sexual battery, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Glenn P. Baxter II, 5925 La. 3112, No. 4E, was arrested Sunday.

“Deputies were dispatched to Vinton regarding a report of a rape,” Myers said Wednesday in a news release. “The victim said Baxter, an acquaintance, entered her home early Friday morning.

“She said he held her down and struck her in the stomach, back of the neck, and legs, causing significant bruising. The victim said she was then forcefully raped.”

Myers said deputies also discovered Baxter sexually assaulted another acquaintance on several occasions over the past four months.

Judge Clayton Davis set Baxter’s bond at $550,000.

Baxter was charged with one count of indecent behavior with a juvenile in September 2012. He admitted to having sexual contact with a 10-year-old juvenile while visiting family at a Vinton home.

Myers said Baxter was convicted of sexual battery in Calcasieu Parish in December 1998.




Sulphur man charged with cruelty to a juvenile

A 36-year-old Sulphur man has been charged with two counts of cruelty to a juvenile, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Jason N. Nazworth is accused of hitting two young family members with a wooden spoon, causing bruises on both their hands.

Myers said the children are 5 and 7 years old.

“When questioned by detectives, Nazworth confirmed the allegations,” Myers said.

Nazworth was releases after posting a $4,000 set by Judge Wilford Carter.



Second man charged in vehicle damage

A 19-year-old Lake Charles man has been charged in connection with the damaging of vehicles on Interstate 10 in early February, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Andrew C. Gobert, 2705 Linkswiller Road, was arrested on March 22.

Myers said that from Feb. 12-14, thirteen vehicles were damaged by large pieces of broken concrete and wood debris that were thrown from the Fabacher Overpass near Vinton. The damage to the vehicles have been estimated to be over $10,000.

Gobert was charged with 12 counts of aggravated criminal damage to property and aggravated assault. He was released after posting the $50,000 bond set by Judge David Ritchie.

Myers said detectives arrested Dalton John Jaquillard on Feb. 18 for the same offense.

Jaquillard, who is still in jail, was charged with seven counts of aggravated assault, eight counts of aggravated criminal damage to property and one count of aggravated battery. Jaquillard’s bond was set at $126,000.


High-speed chase leads to large pot bust

Over 30 pounds of marijuana was discovered following a high-speed chase early Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said 21-year-old Kendall M. Johnson, Murfreesboro, Tenn., was arrested and charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute, aggravated flight from an officer, resisting an officer and driving under suspension.

“At 12:14 a.m. Wednesday, Combined Anti-Drug Task Force Detective Cpl. Kevin Hoover observed an SUV commit a traffic violation and attempted to conduct a stop,” Myers said. “Johnson did not stop and fled from Hoover, traveling in excess of 100 mph.

“C.A.T. Team Detective Cpl. Chris Johnson joined the pursuit as Johnson exited the interstate and started driving south on La. 27. After Johnson crossed in Cameron Parish, a Cameron Parish Sheriff’s deputy deployed spike strips, disabling the vehicle. After the SUV came to a stop, Johnson abandoned it and fled on foot before he was captured a short time later.”

Myers said the street value of the marijuana is over $100,000.

Judge Clayton Davis set Johnson’s bond at $59,500.



Sulphur woman charged with prescription drug fraud

A 38-year-old Sulphur woman has been charged with 28 counts of obtaining prescription medication by fraud, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Kari D. Johns, 163 Summerwood Drive, was arrested on Monday.

“An investigation revealed that between November 2012 and January 2013, Johns obtained numerous prescription pills including amphetamine salts, hydrocodone and carisoprodol by utilizing numerous blank prescriptions from a local doctor,” Myers said. “When the doctor, whose name was on the prescription, was contacted, it was revealed he did not authorize the prescriptions.”

Johns was released after posting the $28,000 bond set by Judge Clayton Davis.



Lake Charles men charged with theft

Two Lake Charles men have been accused of stealing items from the Walmart on La. 14, authorities said.

Judge Wilford Carter set Anderson’s bond at $1,500 and Sonnier’s at $2,500.

“A Walmart security team member said the men took groceries, a DVD player and computer monitor,” Myers said. “The value of the items has been valued at over $1,200.

“A search of Anderson and Sonnier’s apartment resulted in the recovery of several items that were previously stolen from the store, including a computer tower, a video projector, and a DJ Mix Board. Those items have been valued at over $1,000.”
