Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies arrested a Marco man on obscenity charges on Tuesday morning according to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Over the course of the past seven weeks, Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies have been receiving complaints of a nude male standing in the open door of his mobile home located in the 3400 block of La. Hwy 490, in Marco allegedly engaged in inappropriate acts.
