Reports of damaged property, trespassing and suspicious activity on private property in Ponchatoula.
PONCHATOULA, LA - February 6, 2019 - The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriffs Office Criminal Investigations Unit is seeking the public's assistance in identifying and locating suspects in a criminal damage to property investigation.
In the early morning hours of November 24, 2018, several individuals unlawfully entered property belonging to Northshore Communications which is located on Stroeker Lane in Ponchatoula. Surveillance video shows what appears to be a group of young men or teenagers with multiple vehicles unlawfully enter the property and begin reckless operating their vehicles causing large ruts resulting in moderate to severe damage to the property. One of the suspects in this case is seen operating a newer model white Nissan Titan Pro 4X.
For those who may be considering "mudding" on private property should understand they are trespassing and potentially damaging said property, both of which are criminal offenses. Detectives would also like to kindly remind residents that if you don’t own the property or get permission from the property owner, then you should not be driving onto the property to begin with.
If you are able to identity any subjects in the attached photos, please contact Crime Stoppers at 800.554.5245. TPSO Detective Pitman is the lead investigator. (985) 902-2031.
