Sheriff Ronny Richardson of Sabine Parish Sheriff's Office said, "As a retired Trooper and the Sheriff of Sabine Parish, I take pride in a job well done.  It has been a pleasure working with so many professional law enforcement agencies during the scope of this investigation.  The community should be proud of the outstanding job done by these men and women in law enforcement that has helped make our community safer."
