JENNINGS — The Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office is continuing to follow up on leads in connection with the recent theft

of diesel fuel from area rice fields.

Chief Criminal Deputy Robert Broussard said Monday detectives have received more than a dozen tips from confidential informants

and the tip line since surveillance photos of a suspect were released last week.

“The detectives’ phones are ringing off the hook,” Broussard said.

Anyone with information on the case can call the sheriff’s office at 821-2102 or after hours at 824-3850.
