BATON ROUGE, LA — On Monday, November 11, the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office 1st District Patrol Division responded to eight complaints of Criminal Damage to Property in three Belle Chasse neighborhoods. The crimes were reported in the 500 block of E. Second Street; 100, 300 and 500 blocks of E. Third Street; 100 block of C Street, and 100 block of W. X Street.
