Bossier Parish Sheriff's deputies are desperately trying to locate a Minden area man mistakenly released from jail despite the fact that he is facing felony charges in Bossier and Webster parishes.

Wesley Allen Haynes, 35, of Minden was facing charges in Caddo, Bossier, and Webster Parish on multiple charges and was in the Caddo Correctional Center facing charges in Caddo Parish, when a Bossier Sheriff's deputy sent a fax to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office that stated all warrants in Bossier had been recalled and that they no longer had a hold on him in Bossier Parish.  

Bossier Sheriff's Spokesperson Lt. Bill Davis said the fax sent to Caddo Parish was incorrect, which resulted in Haynes being released from custody.

Bossier-Webster Parish District Judge Jeff Cox, who is presiding over multiple offense DWI cases in both Bossier and Webster Parishes involving Haynes, issued warrants in both Bossier and Webster for Haynes arrest.  Cox stated that there would be no bail because he believes that Haynes is a danger to the public.

Davis said the Bossier Sheriff's Office is aggressively pursuing Haynes' arrest and is asking the public for any information on his whereabouts.  

If you have any information on where Haynes may be located, the Sheriff's Office is asking that you call (318) 965-2203 or that you dial 911 in the area where Haynes is spotted.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
