ST. MARTINVILLE MAN STILL BEING SOUGHT IN CONNECTION WITH FELONY WARRANT FOR AGGRAVATED BATTERY CHARGES
The St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office, which has been investigating several home burglaries over the past two weeks, issued a public alert on Monday, Feb. 16.
"We would like to inform the residents that the majority of these burglaries are occurring during the daytime," said SMSO spokesperson Maj. Ginny Higgins.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the St. Martinville Police Department cannot prohibit Mardi Gras floats from playing rap music with obscene lyrics, according to an article in The Daily Iberian.
The newspaper quotes ACLU of Louisiana executive director Marjorie Esman from a letter Esman reportedly wrote to SMPD.
Following a State Police investigation requested by the St. Martin Sheriff’s Office, two former SMSO narcotics agents were arrested last week on suspicion of committing perjury and falsifying arrest reports.
Brian Reyes, 30, of New Iberia, and John Brown, 42, of St. Martinville, already had been fired for undisclosed reasons.
