Sophomores and seniors from schools across Acadia Parish met in Crowley and pondered majors, chose future paths and learned about real life Thursday. Not set-in-stone futures, but enough to hopefully provide a real look at life outside of their hallowed high school halls.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a Rayne man wanted in connection with the simple burglary at a crawfish dock early Thursday morning on Highway 35 south of Rayne.
According to reports, Crowley Police arrested a man Wednesday evening who was being sought for making domestic threats. Initial reports say that the man armed himself - possibly with a knife - and a small standoff ensued. But, police were able to talk the man down and he was arrested without incident. No injuries were reported.
