On October 13, 2013, the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office investigated a theft complaint of an ATV and trailer in the 1500 block of Frenchman’s Bend in Monroe, LA. During the investigation, deputies were able to secure surveillance footage of the suspect vehicle, a red and gray Dodge Pickup Truck, entering and leaving the subdivision.
A Louisiana State Police Trooper recognized the suspect vehicle and provided the identity of the driver. A subsequent investigation revealed that Frank Herbert, 48yo, of Bastrop, LA, was the driver of the Dodge pickup truck involved in the theft. Herbert along with the stolen ATV and trailer were located in Monroe.
In a statement to OPSO investigators, Herbert admitted that he was responsible for this theft along with other thefts including the theft of a zero turn lawn mower in Morehouse Parish. Herbert was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Cenber for Theft of a Motor Vehicle held pending bond.
This investigation is continuing with additional arrests for other crimes expected.
The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Louisiana State Police for their assistance in this investigation.
