Four arrested after rash of vehicle burglaries
DENHAM SPRINGS - Sheriff's deputies said four people in Livingston Parish have been arrested in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries which happened in the northern part of the parish earlier this month.
Investigators charged Cole Morden, Dylan Bryan, Austin Bercegeay and Charles Hebert, all of Denham Springs, as part of their investigation.
Sheriff Jason Ard said deputies connected 17 vehicle burglaries to the four, and recovered more than $8,000 worth of stolen goods.
Ard said the group specifically targeted vehicles which were left unlocked. The sheriff urged people to take their valuables inside each night for safekeeping, and make a habit of locking all their doors.
All four suspects were booked into the Livingston Parish Jail.
