On the evening of March 11, 2006, two Sulphur men were cited by a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agent for possessing illegally taken deer during a closed season.
Daniel Mark Sanford, 29, and Rusty Lane Domingue, 25, were apprehended after information from an anonymous source led Lt. Remy Broussard to Sanford's residence. He found the men in possession of two recently killed does. The two deer had allegedly been killed earlier that evening and taken to Sanford's home in Calcasieu parish where the deer were processed and packed in ice.
The meat was seized by Lt. Broussard and was later donated to a homeless shelter in the area.
The penalty for taking or possessing illegally taken deer during a closed season is a fine between $400-$750, or imprisonment for not more than 120 days or both.
