Sheriff Looking for Horse Thieves


Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office (RRPSO) investigators and Louisiana Livestock Brand inspectors are seeking the public’s help in locating two horses reported stolen on December 12, 2018. The horses were taken from a pasture off of Newton Rd. in the Springville Community just south of Coushatta. Also stolen from the same location were eight bags of livestock feed, three go-carts and a mini-bike. 

One of the missing horses is described as a black gelding with a small star on its forehead while the other is a bay (brown with a black mane and tail) mare with a white stocking on a rear hoof. Photos will be shared if/when they become available. 

Two additional stolen horses were recovered on December 29, 2018 by RRPSO deputies and a Louisiana Livestock Brand inspector. They were found tied to a tree on Jenny Lane off of Huckabay St. south of Coushatta. 

Anyone with information or leads concerning the whereabouts of the missing livestock is asked to contact RRPSO investigators at 318-932-6701/318-932-4221 or the Louisiana Livestock Brand inspector locally at 318-949-3225.
