Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents arrested a Tensas Parish man on Nov. 20 for allegedly possessing a firearm by a convicted felon.
Jeffery R. Bass, 47, of St. Joseph, was arrested after he exited the woods carrying a loaded .44 caliber rifle off of Yucatan Road in Tensas Parish. Bass was transported to the Tensas Parish Sheriff’s Office and booked for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Bass had previously been found guilty of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and therefore cannot legally possess a firearm. He is currently being held without bond.
Agents involved in the case were Senior Agents Leya Grover and John Hendrix.
