For the second time this month, an unoccupied home on Huntington Drive in the Woodland subdivision in Ferriday was broken into.

Thieves stripped copper and electrical wiring and also took other items.

Ferriday Police Investigator Richard Madison said he has been checking with local and out of town scrap metal businesses for information.

"I would like to advocate that people get an alarm system for their homes," Madison said. "It's going to cost way more money for these people to re-wire their homes. With an alarm system we can be there in no time."

Madison said the burglaries are still under investigation.

Earlier this month, a couple returning to their home in Woodland found the copper plumbing was cut out, wiring from appliances and all the electrical wiring torn out of the walls and items were missing.
