Five Acadia Parish teens have been arrested following a string of vehicle burglaries in Lafayette Parish

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office says that during the early morning hours of Saturday, February 13, deputies initiated a traffic stop on North Fieldspan Road on a vehicle believed to be associated with vehicle burglaries near Concerto Drive in Duson.

According to deputies, the vehicle crashed during the stop and five juveniles were seen fleeing from the scene.

The juveniles were later apprehended on Whitmore Road in Scott.

An investigation by the LPSO patrol division, juvenile detectives and crime scene investigators, allegedly resulted in the recovery of a stolen weapon and other items.

Deputies say the vehicle the teens were using was also identified as having been stolen from the Lake Arthur area.

Juvenile Detectives transported all five teens to the Lafayette Juvenile Detention Center and have booked them on the following charges:

  • 2 counts, Juvenile in Possession of a Firearm
  • 1 count, Illegal Possession of a Stolen Firearm
  • 2 counts, Simple Burglary
  • 1 count, Possession of Stolen Things

The sheriff's office says the investigation is ongoing and additional charges in Lafayette and the surrounding parishes are expected.
