Half a dozen cars damaged by vandalism in Belle Chasse

Belle Chasse, La.  - At least half a dozen cars were damaged in Belle Chasse recently, the result of being shot out by either a BB or pellet gun.  The vandalism reports were made in at least three Belle Chasse neighborhoods last weekend.

Calls started coming in to the Plaquemines Parish  on Monday,  November 11th.  The 1st District Patrol Division responded to at least eight complaints of criminal damage to property.  The crimes were reported in the 500 block of E. Second Street; 100, 300 and 500 blocks of E. Third Street; 100 block of C Street, and 100 block of W. X Street.

During the investigations, it was discovered that either late Sunday (November 10) evening, or early Monday (November 11) morning, eight cars were damaged by vandalism.  Six cars had their windows shattered as well as body damage.  Two other cars received only body damage.  In all of the cases, nothing was stolen from inside of the cars. 

Investigators believe that whoever caused the damage did so with a BB or pellet gun. Evidence was recovered from one of the scenes and submitted to the Louisiana State Police Crime Laboratory for analysis.

Initial estimates of damage are believed to be nearly $4,000.

Victims who may not have reported damage to their vehicles are urged to contact the Sheriff's Office at 504-564-2525 to report the crimes.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward up to $2,500 for information on this crime. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111 or toll free at (877) 903-STOP. Callers do not have to give their name or testify to receive the cash reward.
