BAYOU PIGEON - Less than 48 hours after he was released from jail, an Iberville Parish man was arrested and accused of breaking into his neighbor's house in Iberville Parish.
That neighbor told News 2 it was the 13th time he broke into her home.
"For about three or four years now, guy next door breaks in, takes what he wants and they let him go," Donna Marcel said.
Marcel is on oxygen and high-dosage medications, including prescription narcotics, and needs a double lung transplant. Her neighbor, Justin Saniford, was arrested over the weekend and accused of breaking into her house trying to steal that medicine, according to Iberville Parish deputies.
When Saniford was released from jail yesterday, deputies said he returned home instead of going to the hospital to have surgery on a broken foot. This morning, deputies were back at the same location as before, only this time Saniford was allegedly threatening his neighbors with a gun.
"We're done, we're tired," Marcel said. "We're tired of it. How much more are we supposed to tolerate?"
Saniford was once again arrested, this time charged with aggravated battery and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Less than an hour later Marcel's husband, Mike Marcel, and another man, Jarod Setton, were also arrested. They were accused of aggravated battery and obstruction of justice after they allegedly confronted Saniford's father.
Deputies said Saniford's father is a witness to the burglaries, which is why Marcel and Setton were charged with obstruction of justice.
