Ville Platte Police Chief Neal Lartigue reports a juvenile arrest. On August 30, 2018 at approximately 11:00 a.m. The Ville Platte Police Department Officers and Detectives responded to a report of a black male juvenile carrying a gun near Ville Platte High School. Ville Platte High School officials placed the school on lockdown and contacted the Ville Platte Police Department immediately. Officers and Detectives arrived in the area of high school drive and Cotton Street and began their investigation. Information obtained led them to a residence on High School Drive. Upon arrival the juvenile would not open the door and parents were contacted to return to the residence to gain entry. Once the parent arrived, entry was made and a fourteen year old black male juvenile was taken into custody. Inside the residence a 9 millimeter gun was located and was found to have been reported stolen from the Mamou area. The juvenile was charged with one count of illegal possession of a stolen firearm, one count of illegal possession of a handgun by a juvenile and one count of possession of a firearm in a school zone. Chief Lartigue stated that someone reporting what they saw provided Officers and Detectives with information that assisted them with removing a dangerous weapon from the streets of our city. Had this information not been reported in a timely manner, the outcome could have been much different. It is important for the community that suspicious activity gets reported quickly. To report suspicious or illegal activity please call the Ville Platte Police Department at 363-1313. Your call will remain anonymous.
