Suspects Arrested in Connection with Storage Building Burglaries

The investigation by Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Investigators into recent storage building burglaries has resulted in the arrest of two suspects.  Terry J. Martin, age 43 of West Monroe and Kristen Leigh Blakeney, age 31 of Eros have been charged with 3 counts of Simple Burglary each and booked in OCC.

The investigation is continuing.

The suspects were burglarizing the storage buildings by cutting off the existing padlocks, removing items and then replacing old lock with one of their own.

Residents that may rent any storage buildings are advised to check their building to be sure their original lock is still in place.  Should you check it and find a different lock has been installed, notify the facility management and the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office as soon as possible.
