Sunset man accused of hunting from moving vehicle at night
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says a 40-year-old Sunset man is accused of illegal night hunting, hunting from a moving vehicle, and hunting from a public road.
Spokesman Adam Einck says agents arrested Allen W. Moreau on Jan. 3 in St. Landry Parish after he shot a deer from his vehicle with a .243 rifle.
He says they had set up surveillance because area hunters complained about night hunting in the area.
If convicted on all three counts, Moreau could get up to nine months in jail and $1,800 in fines plus $1,624 restitution for the deer.
It was not clear whether Moreau has a lawyer. He could not be reached for comment because an online directory did not include a phone number for him.
