Sheriff Brett Stassi reports that on September 3, 2016, detectives with the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to several burglary calls on the water around Bayou Plaquemine. Boats, outboard motors and gas tanks were among some of the items reported missing. The boats were recovered immediately and found to be stripped of the motors and other valuable items. An investigation led to the arrest of Adam Bedell, DOB 3/13/83, of 10480 Wade Drive, Denham Springs. Bedell was arrested and booked into the Iberville Parish Jail on 4 counts of simple burglary.
Bedell had other stolen items in his possession at his home in Denham Springs. Local authorities are looking into this matter and it is possible that Bedell will be facing additional arrests in other parishes.
