According to Natchitoches Parish District Attorney Van Kyzar, Samuel Bloodworth, 43, of 811 Culbertson Lane in Natchitoches, was sentenced to serve 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to the attempted possession of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute.  Bloodworth was arrested August 4, 2011, by the Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force after they conducted an investigation at a residence on Johnson Drive in Natchitoches after receiving numerous complaints of drug activity.  Officers said as they approached the residence, two individuals attempted to flee and Bloodworth was detained on the front porch. A search of the residence uncovered items consistent with the manufacturing of crack cocaine. Bloodworth has two previous felony convictions in 1995 and 1999 for cocaine possession and distribution.

Robert Foster, 56, of 3983 Hwy. 119 in Natchez, was sentenced to 3 years in prison after pleading guilty to the unauthorized entry of a business.  Foster was arrested February 2, 2013, by the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office after they responded to a burglary alarm activation at Archie's Paint & Body Shop on South Drive in Natchitoches.  Upon arrival, officers said they observed a broken front window and boot prints under the broken window. Foster, an employee of the business, was on the scene and advised he was coming to work.  His boots matched the prints left under the window, and he had a cut on his hand.  Surveillance video also showed Foster driving into the parking lot just prior to the alarm activation.
