The residents of North Bossier parish have been uneasy for a number of weeks, when it comes to the security of their vehicles.

For weeks, thieves have been on the prowl and have successfully committed a string of vehicle burglaries. Hopefully, their successful string is now over as three out of the five man crew has been arrested by Bossier Sheriff's detectives for theft and vehicle burglaries.

According to Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington, early in the morning on July 10, Bossier Sheriff patrol deputies responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in the Legacy Subdivision. When patrol deputies approached the vehicle, they say four men jumped out of the car and fled the scene. One of the men, Cleondra Bernard, 20, of the 200 block of Wilda Street in Carencro, LA., was detained and questioned by detectives.  Detectives say he admitted to burglarizing several vehicles in the Legacy Subdivision.

Jeremy Comeaux, 21, of the 200 block of Eucharist Street in Lafayette, LA., also one of the four men that fled the car, was arrested by patrol deputies on Airline Drive. He also admitted to burglarizing vehicles in the Legacy Subdivision.

Detectives say the other three suspects made it on foot to the St. Charles Place Subdivision where they committed additional car burglaries and stole a vehicle. That stolen vehicle was tracked to the Lafayette area, where all five suspects are from.

After positively identifying the other three suspects, detectives issued a warrant for their arrest. One of the three, Torri Lundy, was arrested on July 18 by the Crowley Police Department. He is currently awaiting extradition from the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The other suspects, Gage Rochelle and Damon Broussard, remain at large and are believed to be in the Lafayette area.
