State Police: Man Arrested in Louisiana Had $393K Worth of Stolen Vehicles

December 9, 2016

The Louisiana State Police announced the arrest of a 38-year-old St. Bernard man who is accused of possessing approximately $393,000 worth of stolen vehicles.

Detectives assigned to the Bureau of Investigations Auto Theft/Insurance Fraud Unit arrested Demetrius Robinson on Dec. 5. Robinson was booked into the Orleans Parish Lock-Up on five counts of Possession of Stolen Property.

State police detectives began an investigation after receiving information from the Gramercy Police Department related to a stolen 18-wheeler parked in New Orleans. After obtaining a search warrant, detectives found four other stolen vehicles on the property: a 2006 Peterbilt, 2010 Hyundai Excavator, 2002 Peterbilt, 2015 Mercedes and a 2007 GMC truck.

The LSP reports that Robinson, who leases the property at 10095 Old Gentilly Road in New Orleans, drove onto the property in the stolen 2006 Peterbilt while the search was underway.

State police say the case remains under investigation.

    Did the guy have an operation to change into a St. Bernard? Wouldn't it be hard to drive a big truck under those circumstances?
