Pine Prairie business Broken into with Stolen Back Hoe


 

 

 

 

 

     Pine Prairie Police are investigating an incident that occurred this (Tuesday) morning at Sham’s Bait and Tackle Store on LA 13 in Pine Prairie. A newspaper carrier delivering newspapers contacted authorities that what she believed to be a forklift had been driven into the front of the store. Police were first notified of the incident at about 3:40am. Chief Todd Ortis told KVPI News that it turned out to be a rubber tire combination back hoe and front end loader. After an investigation, police determined that the back hoe was stolen from the Evangeline Parish Water District #1 Board Office at the corner of Holly and Railroad Street.. The suspect scaled a six foot barbed wire fence and was able to locate the key to start the machine. He then drove the back hoe through the fence all the way down LA 13 to the store. Store video showed the back hoe pushed the front door in and nearly demolished the entire front of the store. The suspect attempted to move the store ATM with the back hoe but was unsuccessful. The video showed the suspect, a white male, entering the store and surveying the ATM machine and the damage and then took off on foot.  Police Chief Ortis said he has interviewed a person of interest but no arrests have been made. He feels confident that charges will be filed soon in the case. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Pine Prairie Police Department at 599-2904. All calls will remain anonymous.
