Lake Charles – On February 16, at around 4:00 p.m., a deputy with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office conducted a traffic stop on a car at Highway 171 and E. Telephone Road in Moss Bluff for a traffic violation.

Both were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.  Brossette was charged with escape and possession of marijuana.  Fisher was charged with harboring a fugitive and possession of marijuana. 

Brossette was originally arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center in September 2008 and charged with 2 counts of simple burglary.  He was released in October 2010 into a work release program before going to the halfway house.

Judge Michael Canaday set Fisher's bond at $17,500; and no bond has been set for Brossette.

Sr. Cpl. Casey Lafargue and Deputy Adam Tate are the arresting deputies.
