From Ponchatoula Police:
Ponchatoula Police Chief Bry Layrisson announces the arrest of 20 subjects on August 8, 2017 for a multitude of charges during a multiagency roundup named Operation Safe City.

This joint effort indicates that crime in this area will not be tolerated and it will not be limited to boundaries. Chief Layrisson compliments the participation of the outside agencies for a job well done and states,
