Two arrested in Louisiana for illegally transporting house, abandoning it in road


Police in Iberia Parish, Louisiana, recently arrested two men in connection with an illegal heavy haul that resulted in property damage and a power outage.

At 3:30 a.m on May 22, the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office (IPSO) responded to Berard Road in Loreauville for a report of an illegal transport of a house.

When officers arrived on scene, they found an abandoned truck, trailer and house blocking the 400 block of Berard Road.

“This has been an ongoing situation and the owner of the house, Tony Domingue (male, 46 years old) was instructed and warned by Sheriff Office Officials that proper permits needed to be acquired from Iberia Parish Government. Those instructions were ignored and during the move down Coteau Holmes Road many mailboxes, road signs and trees were damaged in the process. As well as, hitting power lines and polls causing 695 CLECO customers to be without power for several hours,” IPSO said.
