    BPD has reported that five vehicles were broken into on Dec. 27. These vehicle burglaries were random, not in any particular area of town. They also have reports of several homes being broken into and items such as laptop computers, televisions, games, and even a washer and dryer stolen from the homes. 

     

    On Dec. 28 at 1:30 a.m. the Dollar General Store on North Washington was broken into by two unknown suspects. At this time, the BPD does not have a list of what was taken from the store or the total amount of damages.

     

    The Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Office received a call at 7:30 a.m. on Dec. 23 from the owner of a farm shed on the Mer Rouge-Collinston Highway. The owner reported several items were taken, including 12 batteries taken from farm equipment and a cutting torch with gauges valued at $2,700.  

     

    At 11 a.m. on Dec. 23, the MPSO responded to a call at a church on the Mer Rouge-Oak Ridge Highway. Someone had taken the meter box and wires from the church building. It is estimated that to replace these items will cost $1,000.

     

    On Dec. 25 at 2 p.m. a business on Hwy 425 North, close to the Arkansas line reported a break-in. The suspects destroyed vending machines and took all the money out of them. A business truck was also stolen, but it has been located in Springfield, Missouri.

    At 10 a.m. on Dec. 27, deputies from the MPSO responded to a call from a resident on Patrick Lane. The home had been burglarized with the suspect or suspects taking a 32” Visio television valued at $1,100, a Playstation 3 valued at $300, 12 Playstation games valued at $50 each, a red GameBoy, two GameBoy games valued at $50 each, a Tashiba DVD player valued at $120, a set of 22” rims and tires valued at $1,100, a gold chain with a cross and diamonds valued at $1,500.
