Numerous reports of burglaries in Jennings

JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) - They have struck allegedly dozens of times in recent weeks, now there are arrests in a string of burglaries in Jennings.  The suspects targeted cars and homes, hitting such streets as Granger, Morton and Harrington.

Luckily for Darrell Walls, a neighbor spotted the perpetrators in his yard and called the police, keeping him from being another victim.

He says, "If it wouldn't have been for our neighbor, they would have probably wiped me out and just keep on rolling, but luckily she warned us and it's good to watch out for your neighbors."

So far 6 arrests have been made: 5 juveniles and one adult, 19 year old Reginald Ceasar, but according to Jennings Police, more arrests could be coming.

"It's a strong indication there's probably some more suspects, we haven't even scratched the surface", says Detective Jean Cooley, "some of the information we're working on right now is possibly we can tie 1 or 2 of the 3, those arrested on Monday to Saturday's arrest".

The police say in the past few weeks, a total of 40 vehicles and 5 homes were broken into.  So for Darrell, he's thankful for people he can trust, to protect him from those he can't.
