Deer Camp Arsonists Strike Again
Another deer camp site in the Plain Dealing area has been struck by arsonists. This time, two large deer stands were burned to the ground. Damage has been estimated at more than $2000. This was the latest in a string of vandalism and arson cases at various deer camps in northern Bossier Parish over the past two years. In all, damage and loss has been estimated at more than $100,000.
Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Lt. Bill Davis says the vandals have burned campers and deer stands; placed sharp spikes on the roads to damage tires; and stolen deer stands, feeders, cameras, and other items. All of this activity has been concentrated in an area around Highway 160 and Old Plain Dealing Road and it’s been going on since October of 2010.
Deputies are hoping to catch whoever’s responsible before somebody gets hurt. But, so far, they’ve been able to gather very little evidence. So they’re asking the public for help and Bossier Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1000 for information that leads to an arrest. If you know anything that might help them solve this case, you can call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 424-4100 or leave a tip at www.bossiercrimestoppers.org
