IBERVILLE PARISH - Law enforcement arrested two adults and two juveniles in connection with multiple vehicle burglaries in Iberville Parish. 

The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office and Plaquemine Police Department worked together to arrest 19-year-old Mairickey Stewart, 19-year-old Shyquan Harris and two 16-year-old juveniles. An additional suspect, 24-year-old Warnell Babineaux remains at large.

Iberville Sheriff's Office Chief Criminal Deputy Ronnie Hebert says their office, as well as the Plaquemine Police Department, received calls around 4 a.m. Tuesday.

"We got calls that came in that numerous vehicles were broken into," Hebert says. "Glasses were broken out of truck windows. They were targeting guns and cash, whatever they could get out of the vehicles.

The sheriff's office said the group burglarized more than 20 vehicles, stealing items like guns and wallets. 

One of the burglary victims spoke to WBRZ, saying multiple valuables as well as his driver's license was stolen.

"They damaged two of my trucks," Andrew Zito said. "They broke out both driver's side doors and rummaged through them and took change, took a gun."

The Iberville sheriff's Office praised the work of parish authorities, as well as law officers in Plaquemine.

"I gotta give credit where credit is due," Hebert said. "These guys that work for us -- the detectives, the uniform division, along with the Plaquemine Police Department detectives and uniform division -- they've done an outstanding job."

Stewart is charged with 13 counts of aggravated burglary, four counts of simple burglary, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, and resisting an officer. Harris and one of the juvenile suspects are charged with 13 counts of aggravated burglary. The second juvenile suspect is charged with 13 counts of aggravated burglary, illegal possession of a stolen firearm and resisting an officer.
