Ferriday police are investigation a rash of recent burglaries, Investigator Richard Madison said this morning.

Madison said several air conditioning units and car batteries have been stolen during the past two weeks and a local restaurant broken into.

He said there is one suspect thus far.

The air conditioning units were stolen from house windows and car batteries from vehicles parked in yards, Madison said.

"There's been a rash of them stolen not just in Ferriday, but other areas," Madison said.

He said the serial numbers have been removed, making it more difficult to track down the stolen items.

The burglars are selling the units and batteries, he said.

Ferriday police are also investigating the theft of several items stolen Monday from Pop's Restaurant on Texas Avenue, according to Madison.

He said the owner found his back door broken and several items missing.

"It took place between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.," Madison said.

Among the items stolen were two televisions, a welding machine, a meat slicer, a cash register and beer.

Anyone with any information should contact him at the Ferriday Police Department at 318-757-3606.
