On Wednesday, June 10, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Detectives Ray Smith and Matt Bauer were able to identify one of the juveniles responsible for the burglary. Later, investigators were able to locate a total of five juveniles involved.

Detectives from the STSPO and the Slidell Police Department had been looking for the same suspects in connection with another burglary at Max's Drink Shop.
