“Our deputies and members of the Crowley Police Department teamed up to identify and apprehend two people involved in these burglaries and thefts.
“Our agencies have and continue to work together to serve the citizens of Acadia Parish. By working together, seven burglaries and a theft were solved before the end of the weekend,” stated Gibson.
On Sunday at about 9:10 a.m., Crowley police were called out to the 400 block of North Eastern Avenue in reference to suspicious persons.
Upon arrival, officers located two white males knocking on doors matching the description given by the caller. Officers started questioning the subjects, at which time a pat down for security purposes was performed with a bulge in the subject’s left pocket being found. A Marlboro box of cigarettes was found to be on the subject’s person, which contained six little baggies of a green leafy substance individually packaged. The subject was detained and transported to Crowley Police Department for identification purposes, due to the fact that he had no identification present on him.

The subject then allegedly ran into a house under construction, while officers followed in foot pursuit. The subject was later located in a portable bathroom outside of the house, at which time officers located a green leafy substance as well.
The male juvenile was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and resisting an officer. He was released into the custody of his parent.
