An arrest has been made by the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office (BPSO) in reference to a truck and trailer which were stolen last month.
The alleged truck thief is a juvenile and has been placed under arrest for two counts of theft between $5000 and $25,000.
The theft was initially reported to the BPSO when the truck and trailer were found abandoned in the Dry Creek area on Greentown Cutoff Rd.
BPSO Detectives gathered biological samples from the scene of the recovery and submitted those samples to the Southwest Louisiana Crime Lab for analysis.
Once the lab analyzed the the evidence they matched the sample to a subject that was entered into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database. CODIS is the FBI DNA database that is used to support law enforcement organizations nationwide.
The BPSO is still investigating details of this crime. If anyone has any relevant information they are advised to contact the BPSO by calling Crimestoppers at 337-463-3281. All calls are confidential and callers can remain anonymous if they so choose.
