On Wednesday May 7th, at approximately 4:24pm, Deputies assigned to the NPSO Patrol Division responded to a reported residential burglary in the 300 block of Willie Banes Road near Provencal, La.

Deputies say upon their arrival and while speaking with the complainant they learned that entry had been gained into the residence through a carport door.

Items reported stolen were a General Electric Refrigerator, a Farm hay rack, Troy-Bilt wood chipper, ban saw, rotor saw, drill press machine, air conditioner, assorted tools, and other assorted items valued at $6000 (six-thousand) dollars.

The case was then turned over to the NPSO Criminal Investigations Division for investigative purposes.

During the course of the investigation, detectives identified four suspects in the case as being Byron Scott Johnson, James Matthew Strickland, Staci Shannon Alford, and Jackson Paul Paddie.
