During the early morning hours of September 12, 2015, deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office were dispatched to Black Mud Road in Livingston for a damage to property complaint. The property included several pieces of heavy equipment.
Sheriff Jason Ard says, ‘Some expensive equipment was severely damaged. Unknown suspects traveling by 4-wheelers have been tearing up this location for the last 3 nights. From running bulldozers into ditches and getting them either stuck or water logged to pushing dirt into engines - they really left nothing untouched. I'm hoping someone who knows something about this will come forward. We need to stop this nonsense and let hardworking folks on this property get back to business.'
Anyone with information is asked to call the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office at (225) 686-2241 x1 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP (7867). Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information leading to an arrest(s) in this case. All callers remain anonymous.
