Last Tuesday, two men in Louisiana who were wanted for multiple theft offenses since last August were taken into custody and jailed for the allegations.
On August 26, 2022, a tree service company in Calhoun found that five of their chainsaws adorned with the company name were missing. They suspected that they had been stolen, and they notified the authorities. The owner believed they knew who swiped the chainsaws when someone who purchased two of them revealed the identities of the men whom they bought them from.
Approximately one month later, on September 20, the West Monroe Police Department received a report that someone broke into a mechanic’s business and burglarized four of the vehicles. The suspect was recognized by the alleged victim when reviewing the surveillance footage, and when they gave the person’s identity to the police, it was believed that the man was one of the same suspects involved in the alleged chainsaw thefts.
