Ville Platte Police Make Arrests on Cyber Stalking and Drug Charges


Chief Neal Lartigue with the Ville Platte Police Department reports multiple arrests for narcotics and cyber stalking.

 

Chief Lartigue would like citizens to understand that cyber stalking is becoming more prevalent in our community and it’s a charge that the department is taking seriously. 

 

Cyber stalking according to Louisiana Law is the “Electronic communication, meaning computer, cell phone, pager, video recorder or other means sent to a person identified by a unique address or address number and received by that person.

 

“Use in electronic mail or electronic communication of any words or language threatening to inflict bodily harm to any person or to such person’s child, sibling, spouse or dependent or physical injury to the property of any person, or for the purpose of extorting money or other things of value from any person.”

 

“Electronically mail or electronically communicate to another and to knowingly make any false statement concerning death, injury, illness, disfigurement, indecent conduct, or criminal conduct of the person electronically mailed or of any member of the person’s family or household with the intent to threaten, terrify or harass.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

 

Louisiana law also states that for juveniles the same law applies as cyber bullying.  “These crimes will be taken as seriously as any other crime.” Chief Lartigue said, “I want everyone to understand that cyber stalking is a felony charge.” Lartigue went on to say, “People should be aware that cyber stalking isn’t just by way of text messaging or calling on a phone,” Lartigue said, “Everyone should also be cautious of what they say on social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter.”
