Two Jefferson Parish officers arrested for looting

Thursday, 7:25 p.m.

Two Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office correctional officers were among the 226 people arrested in Jefferson Parish since Hurricane Katrina made landfall.

Cynthine Adams, 48, and Menekia Humphry, 29, no addresses available, were booked with one count each of looting for taking electronic equipment from the Wal-Mart in Harvey, Sheriff’s Office spokesman John Fortunato said Thursday.

Sheriff Harry Lee said Wal-Mart officials opened the Manhattan Boulevard store to deputies and emergency personnel for supplies.

“They took something they did not need,” Lee said of the two women arrested. “You don’t need a camera.”

Both women were held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

A total of 311 people have been arrested in Jefferson Parish since the storm hit. The charges range from drug possession to aggravated battery.

Most of the looting took place in businesses, though some homes were hit, Fortunato said.

Those arrested in Jefferson Parish could face an extended stay in state prison. Inmates from the Jefferson Parish correctional facility have been transferred into custody of the state Department of Corrections since the Gretna jail lost power. More than 1,200 inmates have been transferred. On Thursday only 35 were at the Gretna jail, where power had been restored.

No one will return to the Gretna jail until martial law is ended, Fortunato said.

With bonding companies closed, the only option for those arrested to be released from prison is to post their entire bond in cash

Harvey is on the west bank (across the river) and not considered NO proper. However, someone from Harvey would say they were from NO if they were in, say, Ill or Ca.

So, if the two dumb ho's badge did say NO, they prolly are not the same.

Were they Looting or were they Finding things?

When asked what they were doing on the news, she said looking for looters. Obviously they wanted to blend in so they could catch the looters off guard and arrest them later.
