<![CDATA[MONROE, La. (AP) -- An 18-year veteran Louisiana State Police sergeant has been arrested for allegedly distributing drugs. Col. Mike Edmonson says 42-year-old Ronald Thomas was arrested without incident Monday and booked into the Ouachita Parish Jail, where he is being held on $250,000 bond. He was booked with payroll fraud, malfeasance in office, conspiracy to distribute cocaine, distribution of cocaine and obstruction of justice. Bond information was not immediately available. Edmonson disclosed arrest details Tuesday after flying to Monroe to personally take possession of Thomas' badge, credentials and state-issued weapon. Thomas also was suspended pending the outcome of an administrative investigation. Edmonson says Thomas had worked as the evidence custodian for northern Louisiana investigative operations. He says troopers, while investigating another case, developed information suggesting Thomas' possible involvement in illegal activity.

What's up with the news posting these mugshots all over the nation when, in 2011, a trooper by the name of Romaus J Almond was accused and arrested for simple rape, but no mugshot was ever shown. There were only photos of a badge, another of handcuffs, and yet another of a building in the photo section behind that 2011 story.
