Attempted burglary caught on camera, suspects arrested

News

Three Denham Springs men are behind bars following multiple vehicle burglaries.

This never before seen surveillance video shows one of the men attempting to steal from a man’s car in Denham Springs.  

“I feel very violated,” a man who did not want to be identified said. 

He says for the past few weeks dozens of cars in his neighborhood were broken into including his own.

“[The burglar] was checking our door handles to see if they’re unlocked and was walking around the cars,” he said.

Unlike some of his neighbors his car doors were locked, and nothing was stolen.

On Tuesday, the three suspects were arrested for the string of crimes. The Livingston Parish sheriff released a statement saying victims reported their money and firearms were stolen.

One woman who also did not want to be on camera says after these recent incidents she bought surveillance cameras.

“Just walking out and having somebody outside of your house is just a scary ordeal,” she said. “We’ve just been trying to keep everything locked so nobody can get into our stuff.”

Though the teens are locked up both residents say from now on they will be extra cautious.
