According to Acadia Parish Sheriff Wayne Melancon, during the last six months approximately 15–20 four-wheeler and dirt bikes have been taken between the two parishes. Several recoveries have been made and returned to the rightful owner.
Joshua Ravey, 19, of La Rue Smith Road, Basile. He was charged with simple burglary and theft. He bond was set at $40,000.
Adrian J. Myers, 20, of Brossette, Duson. He was charged with possession of stolen property over $300. His bond was set at $40,000.
A warrant has also been issued for a third suspect, Aaron Guidry of Evangeline. Guidry is currently in a local hospital recovering from severe injuries that he sustained on Oct. 14 after he and another individual allegedly stolen two dirt bikes from a residence on Riverside Road and collided with one another.
A bill of information will be issued on a 16-year-old juvenile from Jennings also involved in the incident.
Melancon advised that, as the investigation continues, more arrests are expected.
