Tips from our Community Relations Division. After Christmas Day has passed and Santa has left all those nice gifts. Make sure you don’t advertise to Burglars what you got for Christmas. Make sure you don’t leave big boxes out next to the garbage can. Break them down or cut them up and place them inside the can to conceal them better.

St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office arrests Marrero man for
stealing package off front porch of Chalmette residence

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office arrested a Marrero man Dec. 18 for stealing a package from the front porch of a Chalmette home, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Carlos Escobar, 43, of the 5200 block of Eden Roc Drive, was booked with criminal trespassing, theft under $750 and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.

On Dec. 17, shortly after 6 p.m., Sheriff Pohlmann said, deputies responded to a call about a theft in the 3000 block of Lloyds Avenue in Chalmette.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they spoke to the victim who said two packages delivered earlier in the day had been stolen from their front porch.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Bureau were able to identify Escobar through video surveillance footage obtained from the victim.

An arrest warrant was issued for Escobar and he was apprehended Dec. 18. Once in custody, Escobar admitted to taking the packages.

Escobar is currently being held in St. Bernard Parish Prison on a $5,000 bond.

Sheriff Pohlmann warns thieves that stealing from St. Bernard residents will not be tolerated, especially during the holiday season.

“It’s really sad when someone steals from another person, but it makes matters worse when the package probably contains a Christmas present for someone,” the Sheriff said.

St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office deputies graduate from P.O.S.T. police academy

Nine St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies and an officer from the Slidell Police Department graduated Dec. 12 after a 92-hour Corrections Division course in Peace Officers Standards and Training, or P.O.S.T., Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

The corrections course, which helps better prepare deputies to work in a prison environment or Juvenile Detention Center, covers topics such as defensive tactics, booking procedures, report writing and the use of force lesson plans. Deputies also are trained in the use of pepper spray, which includes each officer being pepper-sprayed in order to learn firsthand about its effects.

The course, held at the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Training Center in Chalmette, was led by instructors Capt. Dennis Morgan, Lt. Kyle Brown, Cpl. Brandon Lewis and Dep. Darlene Ricks of the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Corrections Division.

St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office deputies who were graduates of the class are: Dep. Christopher Hammel, Dep. Dawn Elder, Dep. Destini Royer, Dep. Whitney O’Brien, Dep. Dylan Cortese, Dep. Austin Savoie, Dep. Jared Bazile, Dep. Jules Martin III, and Dep. Codey Babin.

The Slidell graduate is Off. Claudine Hill.

St. Bernard Dep. Martin was the only student in the class to score a perfect 100% on the course.
