ALEXANDRIA, La. (RPSO) - An anonymous Facebook tip from the public has lead to the arrest of Peggy Alysia Cloud, 18, of Glenmora, in connection with a theft case.
On February 13th, 2018, a report was taken by deputies from the Glenmora Sub-station of a vehicle burglary had occurred in the Plainview area. In this burglary, a wallet had been taken which contained several credit cards. Soon after, the victim discovered these cards were being used in the Alexandria and the Lake Charles areas.
Detectives from the Glenmora Sub-station were assigned the case for further investigation and through that investigation, were able to obtain surveillance footage from the locations where the cards were used. Initially, no one was able to identify the subjects in the footage so it was posted on the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office Facebook page where the public’s assistance was requested.
With over 30 anonymous tips, the public was able to identify the suspects as Peggy Cloud and Haley Rogers. Through that identification and further evidence, detectives had sufficient probable cause to obtain warrants for both subjects arrest.
On March 7th, 2018, Peggy Alysia Cloud was arrested on the active warrant for her arrest and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center and later released on a $1000.00 bond.
Haley Rogers remains at large at this time and detectives are again asking for the public's assistance.
