Louisiana Laundry Burglary Suspects in Court Today
(BOWLING GREEN)-- Two of three Hannibal men arrested in the burglary of a Louisiana laundry are scheduled to be in court today. 21-year-olds Zachary Todd and Tyler Franklin are charged with burglary and property damage. They’re accused of stealing money, soft drinks and snacks from LA Laundry Mat on Highway 79 in Louisiana on February 13.
The third person arrested was 17-year-old Andrew Joseph Lee Lewis. He recently pleaded guilty to burglary and property damage and was sentenced to five years of probation and ordered to pay more than seven thousand dollars in restitution.
Police said they were led to the suspects with the help of surveillance video that the laundry owner had just installed a month before the break-in, and interviews with a business where the suspects paid for 22 dollars of food with eight one dollar bills and loose change. A girlfriend of one of the suspects also told police that her roommate had thrown out some of the snacks and soda pop, which were recovered.
