Norco robbery investigation continues
Sheriff reports that incident may have transpired differently
As previously reported, at 4 a.m. on Aug. 16 in the 100 block of Barreca, the woman went out to her vehicle to get her laptop. As she preceded to go back into her residence, she heard a bicycle approaching. As she turned around, a man grabbed her by the arm and began to struggle with her in an effort to take the laptop.
The victim reported that she began screaming and said that the attacker struck her and fled the scene.
As a result of the victim’s report, Sheriff Champagne issued a warning to all citizens residing in the Norco area to be cautious of this unknown perpetrator and classified the isolated incident as a crime of opportunity.
According to the sheriff’s office, the victim is no longer cooperating with officials, and the initial investigation has revealed that the incident did not occur as originally described.
Although the sheriff reports that residents of Norco do not have to fear such a perpetrator, he suggests that people still use caution when leaving their homes in the early morning hours.
For more information on this incident, the sheriff may be contacted at 783-6237.

$500 Bunge gift cards on hold until construction date set - 577 views
In order to ease the concerns of residents who live near Bunge North America in Destrehan, the grain elevator promised $500 gift cards to 100 residents if the St. Charles Parish Council approved a zoning change that would pave the way for a $50 million construction project. The council gave Bunge the OK in October, but the gift cards have yet to materialize.
