AG Landry Announces Arrest of 89 Criminals


On Monday, 5 people were arrested on over 300 accounts of exploitation of children. This was a result from a cyber-crime sweep intended to take child predators off the street.

On Tuesday, AG Landry announced the successful crime-fighting initiative, Operation Resolution, that resulted in the arrest of 84 people in Tangipahoa Parish. The arrests ranged from armed robbery to drug possession with intent to distribute.

The operation was carried out by the Louisiana Bureau of Investigation, the Hammond Police Department, the Ponchatoula Police Department, Probation and Parole, Homeland Security Investigations, and Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

In a statement from his office, AG Landry said, “Operation Resolution’s success is a great example of what can be done when law enforcement agencies, from every level, work in collaboration…Together, we will combat crime and make our State a safer place.”
