The St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office has arrested two Slidell-area brothers and have issued warrants for the arrest of their stepbrother in connection with numerous residential burglaries that occurred in 2019 in the Slidell area. William Lockard Jr. and Maurice Lockard have both been booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on multiple felony charges.
Authorities say they are responsible for at least 23 residential burglaries that occurred in the unincorporated areas of east St. Tammany Parish. STPSO detectives have been working with Slidell Police, who believe the trio are also responsible for similar burglaries which occurred during the same time period inside city limits. Large amounts of positively identified stolen property and suspected stolen property have been recovered as part of this investigation. Some of the recovered property has been returned to victims; however, other items are still waiting to be identified. The stolen property primarily consists of jewelry, antiques, firearms, collectible coins/currency, and electronics. Anyone who believes they may have been a victim of a burglary and recognizes any of the property in the attached photographs, is asked to contact Detective Ray Smith or Detective Matt Bauer with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office at 985-276-1320.
