|Burglars hit Ferriday businesses|
Burglars continued to strike Ferriday businesses, with several break-ins reported on E.E. Wallace Blvd. during the past few days.
On Feb. 19, Bill Walter's service station was hit, but nothing taken, he said.
The culprits "pushed my air-conditioner onto the floor and went through the drawers, throwing everything on the floor, but did not take anything," Walters said.
Walters has since bolted his air conditioner on both sides of the unit.
On Feb. 20, Big John's, located across from Walter's station on E.E. Wallace, broken into after the thieves went through a hole created when they tore out an air conditioner.
Owner Jerry John's said the culprits took some money and tore up some cash registers.
"It's the same deal," Johns said. "It gets old quick."
Also on Wednesday night, Graham's Jiffy Mart on E.E. Wallace was broken into and several rolls of quarters were taken.
"They got a crowbar and broke the latch on the front door," Lonnie Graham said. "It was a $1,000 door and they just pried off the aluminum facing. They ramshackled everything. I had paper bags under the counter they just threw on the floor. It probably took them about an hour to get in here. I'm just one of several getting hit."
Four Seasons Flowers & Gifts owner Debra McAllister said her business, also located on E.E. Wallace, was broken into on Feb. 21.
"They jerked open the storm door and shoved their way through, knocking the door facing off and the door jam," she said. "They got some change and eight or ten $1s and trashed a few things."
McAllister said her alarm did go off.
"They came in through a door facing Tensas State Bank, which was real brave," she said.
Ferriday Police Chief Richard Madison was unavailable for comment.
