On March 30, employees of the Dollar General located on Highway 25, reported to work and discovered the front door of the business had been shattered. They contacted the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office and patrol deputies responded to the scene. The deputies entered the building and determined that no one was inside. Employees then were able to go inside.
An investigation ensued and detectives quickly determined the identities of three juveniles who entered the store overnight and stole numerous items. One juvenile was apprehended and released to the custody of his grandparents. Warrants have been issued for the other juveniles. Detectives know where the two juveniles live but have been unable to physically locate them.
“It is a sad state of affairs when juveniles are starting out their lives with criminal offenses,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “The two juveniles being sought will be found and must face responsibility for their reckless behavior.”
