As Southwest Louisiana grows there is more interest in our region from the outside, particularly from larger close-by population centers.
Not all of the attention is good, though, as evidenced by recent criminal activity reportedly originating from Houston. However a roundup of suspects in connection with a string of robberies here brought a unified front from area law enforcement in a court hearing. Lake Charles police chief Don Dixon sent a clear message for Houston gangs and any other criminals hoping to set up shop here.
