Baton Rouge man arrested on multiple burglary charges
On September 18, shortly before 5 a.m., Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Deputies responded to two business burglaries in the Prairieville area. As the investigation began, deputies identified the suspect as, 38-year-old Laroy Blackmore of Baton Rouge.
Deputies obtained surveillance video from both businesses and learned that Blackmore gained entry in one business by using a concrete block to bust the front window. Blackmore then stole cigarette packs, liquor, and other miscellaneous items. During the second business burglary, Blackmore gained entry by using a concrete block and then stealing two cash boxes that contained approximately $500.
Blackmore’s vehicle was located in Baton Rouge, and with the assistance of the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, deputies located and recovered the stolen property. Blackmore had a quantity of cocaine on him and was arrested. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail and will be booked into the Ascension Parish Jail at a later date on charges of two counts of burglary, two counts of felony theft, and two counts of damage to property.
