Catching drug smugglers
Sgt. Dennis Penuell has spent several years chasing down drug smugglers, dealers and other criminals.
The Choudrant native and 1994 Cedar Creek High alumnus went to work for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office about seven years ago, following a four-year stint with the Coast Guard, where he worked on the Potomac River in Maryland.
Determined to return to his Lincoln Parish roots, Penuell decided police work was the best path for him, as his assignment in Maryland involved a good deal of law enforcement, albeit on the water.
