Former Basile Police Officer arrested for allegedly making bomb threats to the St. Landry 911 Center

According to Sheriff Bobby Guidroz, “On November 13, 2018 detectives arrested Rasiem Alexis Fredericks after he made bomb threats to the St. Landry Parish 911 Center.” On November 13, 2018, The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to the St. Landry Parish 911 Communication Center in reference to a bomb threat. The caller stated he was going to blow up the 911 building and the employees needed to leave immediately.
The call center was able to trace the phone call back to Fredericks and his location. A search was conducted in the 911 system and it was discovered that Fredericks had previously contacted 911 emergency services on a previous incident. While detectives were at the center, Fredericks contacted the center two more times from the same number saying that the center repeatedly called him and even identified himself as Officer Fredericks. Communication call records indicate that no calls were placed to Frederick’s phone from the center. Detectives obtained additional records, which proved the calls were coming from Fredericks. Detectives then arrived at the address where the call was traced and located Fredericks. Fredericks was advised of his Miranda Rights prior to providing a statement. Fredericks denied placing the call to 911 emergency services. Fredericks was found to be in possession of a Basile Police Department ID card identifying him as a police officer. Detectives contacted the police department and were told that he no longer worked there. Fredericks was placed under arrest and processed at the parish jail.
