DPW employee wanted for limestone theft turns himself in

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge Police say a Department of Public Works employee wanted in connection with a limestone theft turned himself in Thursday night.

Keith Harrison is accused of taking a dump truck filled with limestone belonging to East Baton Rouge Parish without permission then selling the limestone to a local business.

Reports say in the process of dumping the limestone Harrison, 32, failed to put the dump bed down and caused $100,000 in damage to power lines and utility poles. There was approximately $1,200 worth of limestone stolen.

He was booked into the parish prison for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, theft, and criminal damage to property.

Police arrested 53-year-old Donald R. Moore and 52-year-old Kevin Kennedy Coleman on Wednesday for their involvement in the loading and distributing of several loads of limestone to the local business in exchange for $800.

Both Moore and Coleman were charged with felony theft and both have bonded out of the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. Their bonds were set at $2,500 each.
