Baton Rouge police make arrests for curfew violations, looting
Baton Rouge police say at least 16 people have been arrested on violation of a parish-wide curfew that went into effect from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, and six others were arrested and accused of looting during Hurricane Isaac.
Cpl. L'Jean McKneely tells The Advocate five people were arrested and booked with looting a grocery store.
Authorities said they used the looting count in arresting people Wednesday and Thursday for break-ins and similar crimes because the parish was in a state of emergency. Police say such incidents were not widespread.
