ZACHARY, La. (WAFB) - The Zachary Police Department is trying out a new tactic to find people with active warrants.
Dubbed Operation Birthday Blast, the campaign features those with active warrants on Facebook... on their birthdays. They department is encouraging those who believe they have active warrants out to act before their birthdays by calling Zachary City Court at 225-654-0044.
For the first post of its operation, the department wished a happy birthday to Jermaine Battley and Gabriel Lachney. Battley is wanted to distribution/possession of a schedule I drug, illegal window tinting, and a seat belt violation. The department says there are other warrants out for his arrest as well.
Lachney is wanted for criminal mischief and violating a protective order.
