|Arrest warrants issued in burglaries|
Sheriff Randy Maxwell said Tuesday five arrest warrants have been issued in connection with the burglaries of 15 residences in the parish.
Warrants were issued for William R. McCurdy, 28, 341 Greenacres, Vidalia; Tomika N. Drane, 31, who was booked Tuesday; and James E. Ola, 33, 372 Cowan Street, Ferriday. Warrants were also issued for two other individuals whose identities have yet to be released.
Maxwell said some of the suspects are also believed to be involved in other crimes including felony theft, forgery, theft by fraud and auto burglary.
"We're trying to round them all up," Maxwell said.
Six of the burglaries in which arrests have been made were for home invasions on Hwy. 566, Country Meadows, Taconey, Hwy. 568, Hwy. 131 and George Wilson Road, Maxwell said.
He classified many of the suspects as repeat offenders.
"One guy has been in jail 24 times," he said. "They all have lengthy records and every time they get out of jail we have a crime wave. When we get all of these folks in custody I believe we'll solve the rest of the burglaries, if not all of them. I feel sure we'll clear the majority."
Maxwell said the suspects have been previously arrested for the following crimes:
McCurdy, four arrests including one theft and one burglary; Drane, six arrests including one theft and one armed robbery; and Ola, seven arrests including five burglaries.
"There's a new DA in town and hopefully we can get these people prosecuted and put away for a very long time," said Maxwell, in commending Dist. Atty. Brad Burget. "None of these people have been through the system while he's been here."
Maxwell also commended Judges Leo Boothe and Kathy Johnson as well as Burget for clearing a number of criminal cases through the courts in recent weeks.
He credited investigators David Hedrick and Jack Fletcher "for working tirelessly to solve these cases."
