Smash and Grab Burglars Arrested

Friday, May 6, 2011 - 2:45pm

On May 4, 2011, Detectives arrested two men responsible for at least eight vehicle burglaries in which windows were broken and purses were taken. The crimes were committed over the last several weeks while the victims were attending sporting events at ball parks in the Denham Springs and Watson areas.

Dustin Copsey, a 27 year old white male who listed his address as 14323 Latil Street, Walker, La., was charged as follows:
> 8 Counts Simple Burglary

Christopher Snow, a 26 year old white male who listed his address as7878 Parham Drive, Denham Springs, La. was charged as follows:
> 8 Counts Simple Burglary

The pair would search the contents of the stolen purses and handbags seeking to find credit cards and cash. They would immediately use the stolen credit cards, in most cases at nearby convenience stores. Video surveillance at these stores captured images of the thieves and their vehicle.

Other charges will be forthcoming as each incident of use of the stolen credit cards can be documented and applicable warrants obtained.

Both men remain in the Livingston Parish Detention Center in lieu of a $120,000.00 bond.
