The sheriff’s office is in pursuit of a man believed to be involved in both a car and home burglary earlier this month.
Maj. Stephen Williams, spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said a home located on Louisiana Highway 818 was burgled on April 7. Several items including some televisions, motorcycles, an Xbox and several guns were stolen from the property.
On April 11, a car was broken into and officers believed the two were connected.
The Ruston Farmers Market will hold its annual Taste of Summer Festival from 8 a.m. - noon Saturday.
“It’s our annual summer festival that celebrates summer’s bounty,” Jean McWeeney, president of North Louisiana Farm Fresh Corporation, the nonprofit that manages the Ruston Farmers Market, said. “Our vendors bring samples or create dishes that highlight their produce. Some of the non-food vendors will also have samples.”
McWeeney said there will be a large tent with the food samples as well as other activities.
