The Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office is asking for help in solving several recent home invasions.
On June 11, four suspects reportedly kicked in the door of a residence on Beechwood Street and then repeatedly struck a female resident at the house. Suspects were described by witnesses as black males with red bandanas over their faces. According to accounts, three of them were carrying semi-automatic handguns. Chief Criminal Investigator Major Rose Worley said that nothing was taken from the home.
On June 12, a residence on Cummings Road was burglarized. Worley said that several long guns, jewelry including diamond necklaces and rings and an undetermined amount of change in three jars was reported stolen. Suspects also took the keys to a 2013 Jeep Compass which officers later located on Leona Street, but none of the other items were inside it.
On June 16, a house on Cherry Drive was reportedly broken into. Worley said it was reported that two guns were stolen out of the house and a large amount of ammunition.
Also on June 16, a home on Oak Drive was burglarized and a laptop, two iPads and an iPod were taken.
Anyone with any information regarding these offenses may call Crime Stoppers at 281.0050; the Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office at 281.4141 or the Bastrop Police Department at 281.1322. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in felony cases. “Anyone who believes they may have found or bought any of these stolen items may return it to the Sheriff's Office without fear of getting in trouble,” Worley said. “We are just trying to locate the stolen property.”
