LOREAUVILLE, La. — Two men were arrested in Louisiana on Sunday after destroying dozens of mailboxes, road signs and power poles in an attempt to move a large home without a permit in the middle of the night.
At around 3:30 a.m., law enforcement officials were called to investigate an abandoned truck, trailer and large home blocking Berard Road in Loreauville. The truck, pulling a house at least two times wider than the road, had left a wake of destroyed mailboxes, road signs, trees and power poles behind it.
The power had also been knocked out for almost 700 people in the area, according to KATC.
Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office later arrested Tony Domingue, 46 and Nico Comeaux, 32, and charged each of them with one count of a violation of a parish ordinance, obstruction of highway commerce and criminal damage to property, according to KLFY.
Deputies said that Domingue had been warned before the incident by the sheriff’s office that proper permits needed to be acquired from Iberia Parish Government.
Their bond was set at $125,000 each. Additional charges are pending, according to the sheriff’s office.
