On Feb. 14, Red River Parish Sheriff’s investigators/deputies executed search/arrest warrants at a residence located in the 6000 block of Hwy 783 in northern Red River Parish. Due to the rural location, the number of suspects and the warrant specifics, deputies with the Tri-Parish Drug Task Force (Red River, DeSoto and Sabine) and members of the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s special response team assisted with the operation.

One suspect, identified as Kassidy Slayton, was taken into custody at the residence without incident. Three additional occupants fled the residence on foot into a wooded area located behind the dwelling. After a brief search, a second female identified as Jacklyn Dubois was apprehended hiding in the woods. A male suspect, identified as Jason Slayton was also apprehended hiding in the woods by a DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s K-9. He was treated by Red River Parish EMS on scene for a dog bite and later transported by deputies to Christus Coushatta Hospital for additional treatment.

The remaining suspect eventually exited the wooded area and surrendered to deputies. He was the primary resident at the location and was identified as Tyler Waters.

During the course of the suspect apprehensions, deputies entered a nearby uninhabited structure located on the property for officer safety concerns. While clearing the structure for suspects, materials were observed in plain view typically used to manufacture methamphetamine (clandestine laboratory). An additional search warrant was obtained for that structure and those materials. Additional drug related items were collected as evidence. A search of the main residence/property yielded multiple items including one gram of methamphetamine, 12 pill bottles containing prescription medications and a set of digital scales. An active “pot” methamphetamine lab nearing the end of its cooking process was also discovered. The Louisiana State Police Hazardous Materials team responded to the scene to safely dispose of the dangerous lab materials.

All four suspects were transported to the Red River Parish Jail (RRPJ) and booked as follows: Jason W.
