FRED – Deputies with the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Louisiana fugitive last week in the Fred area.
Tyler County Sheriff Bryan Weatherford said that while out on a routine patrol, TCSO deputies arrested David Lamar Lummas, Jr., a 30-year-old Jasper man, after responding to a verbal disturbance at the Fred RV park, which is located at the corner of FM 92 and county road 4700.
Lummas, whom Weatherford said the deputies made contact with after making the scene of the disturbance, learned he had an active warrant for his arrest out of Avoyelles Parish, Lousiana. The warrant was for theft of property.
He was taken into custody, and transported to the Tyler County Justice Center, where he remains incarcerated awaiting extradition to Louisiana.
