A now former Denham Springs Police Officer, Reid Copeland, has been arrested in Texas, according to credible sources. It comes after officials had been looking for him since Friday after allegations of an inappropriate relationship with an underaged teenager.
Copeland was arrested in Irving, TX, that’s right outside of Dallas. No further details were readily available as to how he was found.
Copeland resigned last week after allegations were made against him earlier in the week regarding an inappropriate relationship with a 16-yr-old juvenile. It’s why warrants were issued for his arrest.
The Denham Springs Police Dept. launched an internal affairs investigation into Officer Reid Copeland & he resigned shortly after.
The Denham Springs Police Dept. asked for the the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office’s to handle the criminal investigation into Copeland.
Per procedure, Copeland will now be extradited back to Louisiana from TX and then face charges in Livingston Parish.
The story will be updated as soon as more becomes available.
