Sheriff Mike Waguespack reports that on Saturday evening Patrol Deputies were dispatched to the Bayou Corne (Evacuation Zone for Sink Hole) in reference to residential burglaries. Residents reported several items missing varying from jewelry, electronics, food and miscellaneous yard items. A concerned citizen contacted the Sheriff's Office and stated that she had received property that she felt may have been stolen. Deputies were able to track down several different residents and were able to verify that the items were in fact stolen. The investigation led to the residence of two subjects who live in the same neighborhood. A search warrant was executed on the residence and at the conclusion of this initial investigation two arrests were made. Billy Gros (W/M 18yoa) was arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center and a 14 year old Juvenile was arrested and booked into Assumption Parish's new Youth Detention Center.
This matter remains under investigation and detectives are trying to determine if these individual are responsible for other crimes in the area.
