Avoyelles S.O. arrests four for possession of stolen firearms

Friday the 13th was certainly unlucky for four Avoyelles Parish residents arrested by APSO deputies in connection with a string of recent burglaries.

Alexandria Castro, 21, of Moreauville and Devonte Davis, 24, Deantrae Sampson, 25 and Demarcus Hayward, 25, all of Marksville were arrested at a Marksville residence and charged with 11 counts of possession of stolen firearms last Friday (April 13).

Sheriff Doug Anderson said all four were also charged with possession of a Schedule I drug, criminal conspiracy and illegally carrying a weapon.

The three men were also charged with 11 counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The four were booked into Avoyelles Parish detention centers. Bond had not been set as of presstime Monday.

Anderson said detectives were investigating recent burglaries when they received information that led them to a house at 260 Scallan Street in Marksville. A search of the residence found 11 rifles and shotguns hidden throughout the house.

Some of the weapons found have been confirmed as stolen. The remaining items are believed to have been stolen from local homes and automobiles.
