    That information was immediatedly relayed to the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana State Police, Troop E who issued a BOLO (Be on the Lookout) for the suspect vehicle.

    At approximately 3:10pm, Rapides deputies intercepted the suspect vehicle just south of Boyce, La., it was turning off of I-49 onto La. Hwy 1200 .

    Rapides Sheriff’s deputies pursued the suspect vehicle on La. Hwy 1200 near the Hot Wells Road, where the suspect rammed a sheriff’s unit, allegedly attempted to run over a Sheriff’s deputy and attempted to flee from the vehicle before being taken into custody.

    Scott is facing 1-count of Armed Robbery in Natchitoches Parish and will be transferred to the Natchitoches Detention Center at a later date.

    Deputies say the victim was shaken by the ordeal but uninjured.

    Sheriff Victor Jones expresses his thanks to the Rapides Parish Sheriffs Office and Louisiana State Police Troop E for their immediate assistance in the apprehension of the suspect.

    The investigation is continuing by the NPSO Criminal Investigation Division in conjuction with the US Postal Service Inspections Division.

    The problem is, the bureaucrats who draft the laws, don't understand sarcasm any better than they understand human nature.

    He was trying to get his face up on the wall. For what they're charging for stamps, they get you every time you walk in the place.

    Is that a regular PO that he was at? I looked at street view on google maps and I do not see any building that would be a regular PO. Just curious if anyone know if this was a contract (correct word) PO where you could carry a firearm

    Cloutierville is a very small rural town, I haven't been thru there in a while, and I'm not sure of the status of their PO building. At one time it probably was inside a country store, I'm betting it's not now.

    I am the Deputy that caught Ricky Scott. I spotted him just north of Boyce as he was traveling south. Speeds reached 114 mph. After he rammed my unit the first time I was able to exit my vehicle. The second time I was two feet away. As he was held at gun point. No I still dont know if he had a weapon. If he did, he was not going to have the chance to use it regardless. Suspect had two other arrest for armed robbery, and on probation. Wow. Yes he is lucky I did not shoot, even luck i did not deploy my dog.

    The robber didn't get far though, here's the story. I'd say he's lucky to be alive.
