Vehicle burglaries in DeSoto Parish have resulted in authorities placing North DeSoto High School on lockdown. Authorities tell us that the school is on external lockdown while they search for three men believed to be involved in the burglaries. Classes are functioning as normal.

We wanted to notify the public to be on the lookout for any suspicious persons in the area of Rambin Road/Old Jefferson Road/Stonewall-Preston Road this morning. We responded to North DeSoto Estates in reference to some vehicle burglaries this morning and pursued a vehicle with 3 male occupants to a residence near the Shell Station on Highway 171 in Stonewall.
