SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Four suspects were arrested Tuesday in connection with reported incidents of criminal damage to businesses throughout Southwest Louisiana.

During the course of the investigation, DeRidder detectives were able to use surveillance video to identify four suspects accused of using slingshots to shoot marbles and fishing sinkers at cars and windows.

The four suspects were located at a car wash and are identified as 29-year-old Dustin Jeane, 21-year-old Kirstyn Jeane, 37-year-old Angela Lopez, and 34-year-old Margie Williams, all of Leesville.

All four were booked into the Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office Jail on charges of felony criminal damage and conspiracy to commit criminal damage. Bonds have not yet been set in the case.

Upon further investigation, authorities discovered that these suspects may be part of a multi-state theft operation. Authorities say the persons involved in the operation would shoplift items from stores in Texas and Louisiana, then use old, discarded receipts to obtain cash.

Anyone with information regarding damage to their property can contact the DeRidder Police Department at 337-462-8911.
