State and local law enforcement arrested 14 people in Southwest Louisiana as part of a massive warrant sweep in Calcasieu and Jefferson Davis Parishes.

Law enforcement spent the morning in search of 50 people who have failed to report to their parole officer, violating the terms of their supervised release. In many cases, offenders break contact due to having returned to a criminal lifestyle and they are trying to avoid detection.

Today's roundup involved more than 60 officers from the state parole offices in Lake Charles, Lafayette, Leesville, and Ville Platte Districts, the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center Chase Team, and deputies from the Calcasieu and Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Departments. 

The warrants were for individuals under Probation and Parole supervision for various crimes including manslaughter, battery, distribution and possession of drugs, as well as burglary and theft. Today's warrants represent both parole and probation cases, and include men and women offenders.  

The arrested people were booked into the the Calcasieu and Jefferson Davis parish prisons.

In support of today's sweep, Acadian Ambulance provided paramedic teams to assist with any medical needs. 

Parole officers will continue to serve the outstanding warrants, arresting individuals who have violated their probation or parole.
