A 37-year-old Lacassine woman has been charged with domestic abuse battery and aggravated assault after she allegedly damaged a vehicle and pointed a loaded shotgun at her husband, authorities said.

The Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office said Jaime M. Hargrave was arrested Wednesday after an incident at a residence on Main Street.

Witnesses told authorities that Hargrave hit a vehicle with a shovel and when her husband, Edward P. Hargrave, tried to stop her, she then struck him.

Witness also said the woman picked up a 12-gauge shotgun, cocked it and pointed it at her husband. Another witness grabbed the shotgun from her and unloaded it, authorities said.

Texas men charged with felony theft

Two Texas men were arrested early Wednesday morning at trying to steal rims from the Billy Navarre dealership in Sulphur, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Daniel Lee Washington, 42, and Robert A. Lewis, 33, were charged with theft over $1,500, criminal trespass, aggravated flight from an officer and illegal possession of burglary tools.

“Deputies discovered Washington and Lewis attempting to steal aluminum wheels, worth over $21,000, off of six trucks on the lot,” Myers said. “When the deputies approached Washington and Lewis, both fled on foot. Following a brief pursuit, they were apprehended without incident.”

Myers said the men had a drill, lug wrench, floor jack, bolt cutters and two cardboard boxes filled with wooden blocks.

“Washington was in possession of a set of keys to a U-Haul truck, which was located two blocks from the car dealership parked at Sulphur High School,” Myers said.

No bond was set.

Sulphur men charged with drug possession

Two Sulphur men have been charged with three counts of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said 33-year-old Cody D. Harris, 4106 Sherry St., and 43-year-old Stephen T. Mercer, 675 Bryan St., were arrested Thursday morning following a traffic stop.

“When the deputy approached the SUV and spoke with the men they began to act suspiciously,” Myers said. “The deputy found two bags of marijuana, three bags of crystal meth, 18 Klonopin pills, five Xanax pills, a digital scale, two spoons, three syringes filled with a cloudy liquid and two empty syringes.”

Harris was also charged with first-offense marijuana possession, driving with a suspended license. Mercer was also charged with third-offense marijuana possession.

Harris’ bond was set at $20,000 while Mercer’s was set at $10,000.
