St. James Sheriff Willy J Martin Jr.

The St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing quality law enforcement to the residents, businesses, and visitors of our parish. We strive to maintain safe and secure communities so that our residents can live, prosper and have peace of mind.


On the night of January 14th and into the morning of January 15th, there were numerous vehicle burglaries in the area of High Ridge Drive and Ranson Lane in Vacherie. For the past couple of days detectives have conducted an investigation and today two arrests were made. Jeremiah Sheppard and Carzell Scioneaux, both of St James, were arrested on multiple counts of Simple Burglary.

Although two arrests have been made, we are still seeking information and assistance to identify a third suspect.

We would also like to take this time to remind our residents to lock their vehicles every night.

Please call 225-562-2200 with any information.
