NPSO and NPD units searched the area for the vehicle.

NPSO Detectives also responded.

Items reported stolen were: Generac generator, Miller plasma cutter, a DeWalt metal cutting chopsaw and other assorted items valued over $3000.

Cobb remains in the Natchitoches Detention Center awaiting bond.

  1. How many times has he been arrested for theft and burglaries and he bonds right back out of jail? He is always in trouble with the law. But, I guess when you know you won’t be in jail for long, there is no incentive to stop the behavior and the residents have to pay for it every time he breaks into their homes.

  2. I have nothing to say on this subject. But I really do think the NPSD need to solve things shooting in Natichitoches.

  3. I know Michael Cobb. This is very disappointing. About 10 years ago or so he was busted on drug charges and spent 2 years in prison. When he got out he cleaned up his act, landed a very good job, and seemed to be on the right path. He has a daughter, 9 or 10 yrs old, who he was raising on his own. I hear her mother is a drughead. I have no explanation for this latest escapade. Clearly he had not learned the lessons of his previous “mistake.” I feel for his little girl. She deserves better.

    • very sad for his kids and especially if he is a single parent.But he is a grown
      person and knows right from wrong or should.

  4. another great job by all law enforcement involved and the citizens that called
    this in quickly.This is why home owners need a gun to protect what is theirs.

  5. Felony theft, hmmm. I can’t help but wonder if he will spend much time in jail. It’s too easy to bond out here, and then when he does go before a judge, will he just receive a slap on the wrist and be told to not do that again. I do believe in actions have consequences. He needs to realize this and a slap on the wrist will not do that for anyone. One thing I detest, is a smirk on the face of someone being booked, or of someone leaving a courtroom after only receiving a slap on the wrist.
