The Louisiana attorney general's office has received price gouging complaints, largely about gasoline prices.
Spokeswoman Amanda Larkins said Tuesday that the office also has recorded "a handful of complaints" about prices for hotels, batteries, cigarettes, gas cans and water.
Louisiana's price gouging ban was in effect as soon as Gov. Bobby Jindal declared a state of emergency in advance of Isaac, a declaration made Sunday. The law prohibits a seller from pricing items above pre-emergency levels unless there's a market shortage.
The St. Tammany Sheriff's Office says three young men from Slidell are accused of looting thousands of dollars worth of equipment from boats that were docked near Slidell to make them safer from Hurricane Isaac.
Sgt. George Bonnett says 22-year-old Cody Page, 20-year-old Ryan Dussor and a 17-year-old all were arrested and will be booked with looting, which carries a minimum sentence of three years at hard labor and a $5,000 fine.
