Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents arrested a Mississippi man for alleged possession of stolen property on March 3.
Agents arrested Donald Juan, 36, of Picayune, Miss., after finding him in possession of two stolen personal watercrafts and a trailer that belonged to a New Orleans man.
The personal watercrafts and trailer were reported stolen in the summer of 2013. LDWF agents received an anonymous tip that the stolen watercrafts were located in Slidell in St. Tammany Parish in February of 2015.
After further investigation, agents were able to trace the personal watercrafts back to Juan. Agents booked him into the St. Tammany Parish Jail and seized the personal watercrafts and trailer.
It is unknown at this time who was responsible for stealing the personal watercrafts and trailer in 2013. Agents believe that Juan fully knew they were stolen when he acquired the stolen property.
Possession of stolen property brings up to a $3,000 fine and up to 10 years in jail.
Agents involved in the case are Senior Agent Michael Marquez and Mike Williams.
