Excavator stolen from Livingston Parish job site, found in Mississippi
SATSUMA - The Livingston Parish Sheriff's office says a parish-owned excavator stolen from a job site in Satsuma this week was later recovered all the way out in Mississippi.
According to the sheriff's office, the 18,000-pound piece of machinery went missing from a site off Black Mud Road earlier this week. The excavator was missing for days until a tip led authorities to Mississippi, where they found the stolen equipment.
The sheriff's office says it has identified two suspects in the theft. One is a 25-year-old from Baton Rouge, and the other is a 36-year-old from Florida.
