LIVINGSTON La. (WGNO) — An executive secretary for the La. Board of Private Security Examiners (LBPSE) was one of two people arrested as part of an alleged drug transaction near the Albany area on Tuesday, according to the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Bridgette Hull is an LBPSE executive secretary, according to the Division of Administration website. Also arrested was Steven McCarthy.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office made a post on Facebook about the incident. LSPO says that they were contacted by a representative with the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office requesting additional units to aid in making an arrest near a fast food restaurant.

When deputies arrived they identified McCarthy, who had warrants for his arrest for multiple charges including obstruction of justice, possession of a firearm, and PWID CDS.

LPSO says that prior to LPSO’s arrival “McCarthy fled WB from Albany.’ He allegedly then struck a vehicle causing the driver of the vehicle to be injured. McCarthy was then arrested and got additional charges including the following:

  • Aggravated Flight
  • 2 counts: PWID
  • 2 counts: PWID (fentanyl and meth)
  • Possession of a firearm by a felon
  • Possession of a firearm with CDS
  • Negligent Injuring

Through the investigation, detectives were able to figure out that Hull was found in the middle of a drug transaction as an acquaintance of McCarthy prior to McCarthy fleeing. Hull will face the following charges according to LPSO.

  • 2 counts: PWID
  • 2 counts: PWID (fentanyl and meth)
  • Possession of a firearm with CDS

According to deputies, Hull is in the process of being booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center. The investigation is still under investigation.
