Ascension and St. James deputies looking for two suspects involved in recent string of vehicle burglaries
ASCENSION - Deputies are trying to identify two suspects responsible for around 20 vehicle burglaries Saturday night.
The burglaries occurred at several hotels in Donaldsonville and St. James between the hours of 10 p.m. and midnight.
"You have persons traveling through like myself, you think you are getting a peaceful night's rest, and then you wake up to mayhem in the morning," hotel guest Sharelle Lacey-Gibson said.
The suspects are seen on surveillance video walking up to vehicles and punching out the windows, removing valuables from the cars.
Authorities say the suspects were in an older model white Toyota Camry.
Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office at 225-621-4636 or call Crime Stoppers at 225-344-STOP.
