HAMMOND, LA - (October 3, 2017) - Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards reports the following:
In June of 2017, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office Financial Crimes Unit began an investigation into thousands of CHEP pallets reported stolen from a Memphis based transportation company. The estimated value of these pallets is well over $100,000.00.
As the investigation continued, it was learned that this theft ring branched over into the Denham Springs area. Now, in joint efforts with Denham Spring's Police Department, 2 suspects have been identified and connected to this case.
