Jody Glynn Mullins (RPSO)

ALEXANDRIA, La. (RPSO) - An Alexandria man was arrested after arriving at a residence, claiming to be an RPSO deputy.

RPSO responded to North Bolton Avenue on February 23 in reference to a report of a suspicious person.

Contact was made with the complainant, who advised the suspect, Jody Glynn Mullins, 43, of Alexandria, was at the residence on the previous day, uninvited. The two engaged in conversation relating to a civil matter, during which Mullins allegedly identified himself as an RPSO deputy.

At the time of the incident, Mullins was armed with a firearm and a badge, which was not consistent with that of RPSO. Mullins eventually left the residence without any further disruptions. On the date of the complaint, Mullins returned, unannounced.

Mullins was instructed to leave the residence multiple times, but refused to comply. Eventually, he left when he learned of law enforcement’s involvement.

Detectives were able to establish sufficient probable cause to obtain a warrant for Mullins’ arrest. On February 28, Mullins was located and arrested on the warrant and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center. He was later released on a $1,500 bond.
