On June 20, 2022 BPSO deputies responded to a possible burglary at 120 Hiser Road off La 9 south of Arcadia. Investigation revealed that unknown individuals had gained entry onto the gated property by sawing through a pipe at the gate and removing part of the fencing. The intruders then proceeded to a large metal building located on the premises and gained entry by cutting a deadbolt on a rear door.
Although the transformer to the building was still energized, two weather heads had been removed from the building and the power source was cut off. Copper cable was removed from the conduit from the weather heads outside the building and copper cable and wiring from conduit located in the first and second floor ceilings inside the building.
Estimates to replace and repair damages exceed $100,000.
BPSO asks that if anyone has any information regarding the burglary/theft to call 318 263-2215 or leave a PM via the SO Facebook page.
The property owner is offering an undisclosed cash reward to anyone who provides information leading to the arrests of the perpetrators of this crime.
