On October 30, 2018 Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office investigators Libby Brixey, Rebecca Wallace, Jeff Philley, and Trevor Whilhite, arrested Marquest Bolden for burglary of a vehicle and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Over the last few weeks the Sheriff’s Office has received reports of vehicle burglaries in the areas of Hill Ave, Mimosa St and Hollyhurst St. During the investigation of these burglaries Bolden became a person of interest. Investigators went to his residence on West Madison. Bolden gave a consent to search and evidence was recovered at his residence and information gathered there led to a search of an abandoned house close to his residence.
During the search four pistols and one long gun were recovered along with multiple other items that had been reported stolen from the vehicles. More charges are pending.
