Mardi Gras Pick-Pockets Located in Tickfaw

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriffs Office reports the arrest of four individuals after an early morning search warrant lead to the recovery of 40 iPhones, and various other objects. 

Early Saturday (February 18, 2023 morning, Chief Jimmy Travis was contacted regarding a subject who was pick-pocketed while attending Mardi Gras in New Orleans. According to the complainant, the victims cell phone was stolen from his pocket, but was able to trace the iPhone to an AirB&B in the Tickfaw area. 

Chief Travis along with patrol deputies and detectives responded to the residence and,  after conducting initial interviews with the subjects, was able to secure a search warrant for the home. Upon conducting the search warrant, 40 iPhones were recovered from a backpack along with various credit and debit cards, identification cards, and other items. It is believed the subjects flew to New Orleans from Miami to attend Mardi Gras, where they devised the pick-pocket scheme. 

Arrested for Possession of Stolen Property were 32 year-old Bridgette Solorzano Rodriguee, 36 year-old Yudi Solorzano Sanchez, 26 year-old Jean Paul Sabogal Angorita, and 24 year-old Rafael Adrien Souza. 

***All persons accused of a crime are considered innocent until proven guilty.***

Chief Travis asks that anyone who was victim of a pick-pocket in the area St Charles Avenue in New Orleans, and specifically lost an iPhone as a result, are urged to file a report with the New Orleans Police Department. 

Those attending Mardi Gras and similar events such as fairs and festivals, are always encouraged to remain aware of their surroundings. A suggestion for preventing a pick-pocket is to always keep wallets and phones in a front pants pocket rather than a back pocket while in a large crowd.
