Wes Haynes turns himself in to Bossier deputies
Man accidentally released from jail turned himself in at noon today.
An all-out manhunt for Wesley Allen Haynes of Minden was launched by Bossier Sheriff's deputies last week when The Inquisitor began questioning officials as to why he was released from custody on Nov. 3. After information was published in response to a Hotline Comment in Friday's printed edition of The Inquisitor as to how and why he was released, the Bossier Sheriff's Office announced that deputies were aggressively pursuing Haynes because he was released by mistake.
This weekend theinquisitor.com published a breaking news story at the request of the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office asking for the public's help in locating Haynes. Bossier Sheriff's spokesperson Lt. Bill Davis said Haynes turned himself in to the Bossier Sheriff's Office at noon today (Monday).
Haynes was released in November from the Caddo Correctional Center after facing charges in Caddo Parish and after serving time for possession of an alcoholic beverage inside a motor vehicle. Haynes had holds placed on him from Bossier Parish and the Shreveport Police Department, however a Bossier Sheriff's deputy by the name of "Deputy Wilson" faxed Caddo Parish authorities and advised them that the warrants and holds against Haynes had been recalled, which subsequently resulted in Haynes being released from custody.
Haynes has repeatedly received what many classify as sweetheart deals from the Bossier-Webster Parish District Attorney's Office and court records substantiate those claims as Haynes has many multiple offense DWI arrests, according to court records in Bossier and Webster Parishes.
When The Inquisitor asked Bossier Sheriff's Lt. Bill Davis for the first name of "Deputy Wilson" we were denied the information, citing the fact that Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington has now launched his own internal affairs investigation into how and why the fax was sent to Caddo Parish which ultimately resulted in Haynes being released.
When Haynes failed to appear in Bossier and Webster Parish Courts for his court dates after being accidentally released, Bossier-Webster District Judge Jeff Cox, who was presiding over Haynes' cases in both Bossier and Webster Parishes, issued warrants for Haynes' arrest and ordered that he be held without bail. Cox stated that Haynes was danger to the public.
