It seems Monroe Police Corporal Reggie Brown may be at the heart of the decision by Police Chief Quentin Holmes to pull his department out of any further participation in the 31-year-old Metro Narcotics Agency in Ouachita Parish. That’s the Agency in which Monroe PD, The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney’s office have pooled their resources to provide a joint task force to combat drugs and drug trafficking.
Highly credible sources said the reason Holmes pulled out of metro is because metro is investigating cpl Reggie Brown who has been assigned to Metro Narcotics. He has been accused of double dipping. Sources said Brown was working off duty (reportedly providing security for Civic Center events) while he was on the official books at Metro Narcotics.
Allegedly, at issue is up to 200 double-dipped hours. Brown also has served as Mayor Jamie Mayo’s driver. Brown was pulled out of Metro once before but before his replacement could be assigned to the special unit, the Chief was allegedly instructed to put Brown back at Metro. Now, after Metro has refused to end it’s reported investigation into the reputed double-dipping by the Corporal, the city yanked its participation in Metro.
