DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -
Three teens are behind bars after being accused of burglarizing multiple homes in the Denham Springs area.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office responded to calls between midnight and 3 a.m. Monday of unknown suspects entering into homes while the residents were asleep. The burglaries were reported on Tara Drive and New Hope Avenue in the Plantation Garden Homes Subdivision and on Hermitage Drive in the Plantation Estates Subdivision.
LPSO responded to the area and motioned for a vehicle to stop that was leaving the area of the burglaries. Instead of stopping, the vehicle took off in an attempt to elude deputies.

The vehicle they were in was reported stolen. One of the suspects was found with a weapon on him. A stolen weapon was also recovered from inside the stolen vehicle.
