Sunday, November 13, 2022, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office responded to a crime scene in the Sand Isle Community in Joaquin. During this investigation, Jayson Richardson, Sheriff of DeSoto Parish, Louisiana stepped up and provided assistance to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Richardson brought in a state-of-the art command center that provided our deputies and investigators the ability to discuss the situation at hand, charge equipment and provide lighting to the scene. Sheriff Richardson brought in deputies, a tracking dog, and a helicopter to search the area for the suspect who was seen fleeing the scene on foot. The manpower and dedication the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office showed our agency is more that we could have ever asked for. The time, knowledge and tools provided, allowed our agency to thoroughly process the scene and bring those responsible for this heinous crime to jail.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will be forever grateful.
