Deputies say at approximately 6:36 p.m., an anonymous caller contacted the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office regarding a possible sighting of the escaped inmate in the Church Street area. Javien Demouchet was wanted for allegedly fleeing from officers while being processed on a warrant for Failure To Appear For Drug Court.
Officers with the St. Martinville Police Department responded to the call and say they made contact with an individual matching the description of Demouchet. However, they say Demouchet attempted to flee again, but he was captured about a block away.
Demouchet was taken into custody without incident by St. Martinville officers. Demouchet faces additional charges in connection with this incident and is currently being held on a $500,000.00 bond.
