Five Acadia Parish Teens arrested following a string of vehicle burglaries in Lafayette Parish

Posted: Feb 14, 2021 10:52 AM

During the early morning hours of Saturday, February 13, Deputies with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office initiated a traffic stop on North Fieldspan Road on a vehicle believed to be associated with vehicle burglaries near Concerto Drive in Duson. The motor vehicle crashed during the stop and five juveniles were seen fleeing from the scene.

The juveniles were later apprehended on Whitmore Road in Scott and additional investigation by the LPSO patrol division, along with juvenile detectives and crime scene investigators, resulted in the recovery of a stolen weapon along with other items. The motor vehicle the juveniles were using was also identified as having been previously stolen from the Lake Arthur area.

Juvenile Detectives transported all five teens to the Lafayette Juvenile Detention Center and have charged them with the following crimes:

2 counts, Juvenile in Possession of a Firearm
1 count, Illegal Possession of a Stolen Firearm
2 counts, Simple Burglary
1 count, Possession of Stolen Things

This investigation is ongoing and additional charges in Lafayette and the surrounding parishes are expected.
