On Oct. 17, Assumption Parish sheriff's deputies responded to multiple vehicle and residential burglaries in Belle River. The crimes were confined to an area within close proximity to each other.

The initial investigation revealed multiple vehicles had been burglarized. The automobiles had been rummaged through and at least one firearm as well as numerous personal items had been stolen from the unlocked vehicles, Falcon said.

It was also determined that a number of homes had been burglarized and items stolen from within, Falcon said.

Detectives initiated a lengthy and ongoing investigation and were able to identify multiple suspects.

Community involvement, video surveillance, multiple witness interviews and assistance from the St. Martin and Bienville Parish Sheriff’s Offices led to the identity of the suspects.
