Deer camp arsonists strike again

Arsonists struck another deer camp site in Plain Dealing last weekend and burned two large deer stands to the ground, causing more than $2,000 in damages.

The incident occurred some time on Sunday or early Monday after the owners of the campsite on Highway 160 near Old Plain Dealing Road arrived Monday to find two large box deer stands completely burned and still smoldering.

This latest incident follows a string of vandalism and arson cases at various deer camps over the past two years in northern Bossier Parish that has caused more than $100,000 in damages.

Over the past two years, vandals have burned campers, placed sharp spikes on the roads causing damage to tires and stolen deer stands, feeders, cameras and other items at deer camp sites in the vicinity of Highway 160 and Old Plain Dealing Road since October, 2010.

The Bossier Sheriff's Office and Bossier Crime Stoppers are offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the persons responsible.
