From the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office:

LIVINGSTON---Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard confirms one arrest following several vehicle burglary complaints from homeowners within Acadiana Place Subdivision.

On February 13, 2018, deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Fitzgerald Dr. for the first of several burglary complaints.

Sheriff Ard says, "That one complaint turned into 23. Items stolen range from iPads to medications to tools to laptops - all from vehicles that were left unlocked. We learned that this suspect walked to the subdivision, pulled on at least 50 vehicle door handles and attempted to use a camouflage ski mask to hide his identity."

Detectives were able to use images from home surveillance systems & electronic tracking to stop this suspect & locate the stolen items.

The suspect, identified as 28-year-old Anthony Cameron of Denham Springs, was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center.

Sheriff Ard says, "We know unlocked vehicles are a popular target. Suspects are taking anything and everything they can get their hands on. Make a habit of taking your valuables inside with you and locking your vehicles. They don't care who you are or what you're going through - they are simply checking for easy access to free stuff. So, lock it up, Livingston Parish."
