Sheriff requests Parish Council raise speed limits on newly paved roads

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz urged the Parish Council to raise speed limits on newly paved roads in the parish.
“We are probably going to make the social media tonight because this probably is going to be one of the first times a sheriff comes to you and asks you to raise the speed limit on parish roads,” he said at Wednesday’s Parish Council meeting.
Speed limits are as low as 20 mph on some parish roads that up until the Smooth Ride Home Program were either pot-holed or gravel.

Sheriff: Man preyed on teen girl, threatened sibling

A 22-year-old Eunice man is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old girl and threatening the girl’s sibling, St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said in a news release.
A parent reported to the St. Landry Sheriff’s Juvenile Detectives Section that their daughter was having sex with a 21-year-old male, he said.
“The parent reported that they returned home and caught the two in bed together. The suspect then jumped out the window of the home and fled when the parent went to call the police,” he said.
