On Monday April 12, 2021, officers with the Broussard Police Department responded to a neighborhood with residents reporting a vehicle burglary. It was learned that several burglaries had been committed by a group of individuals. As officers arrived in the area and got down on foot in an attempt to locate the suspects, they were located in the yard of a residence. Officers were able to detain a juvenile suspect and attempted to arrest a second suspect that fought with Sheriff Deputies and got away. We located several firearms in the area that were stolen during the burglaries.

Investigators with the Broussard Police were able to identify the suspect that fought us and got away as well as the driver of the vehicle, they later turned themselves in to detectives at the Broussard Police Department. The three suspects identified have all been arrested and charged with multiple counts of burglary.
One suspect was a 16 year old juvenile.
Two adult suspects are identified as:
Faith Capritto W/F 20 YOA of St. Martinville; (Driver of the vehicle) Charged with 3 counts of Burglary of a Vehicle
Todrick Toussiant B/M 21 YOA of St. Martinville; Charged with 3 counts of Burglary of a Vehicle, Resisting Arrest and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Juvenile.

Chief Decou would like to thank Lafayette Sheriff’s Office and Youngsville Police for their assistance in helping us locate the suspects. Teamwork amongst agencies allowed us to seal off the area better in order to catch these criminals. Also the partnership that we have with our community is very valuable to us. Citizens reporting suspicious or criminal activity when it is occurring helps us tremendously. Remember to LOCK YOUR VEHICLES please!

The Broussard Police Department is dedicated to protecting our citizens and their property. If anyone has any information on this crime or any criminal activity you are urged to call the Broussard Police Department at (337) 837-6259.
