MANDEVILLE (WVUE) – A Mandeville man is behind bars for causing extensive damage to several St. Tammany Parish businesses and one residence.

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office rested Jacob Pratt, 30, at his home in Mandeville Friday.

Police say Pratt broke windows out of and caused damage to several Covington/Mandeville area businesses and a family residence located in Mandeville.

Late Saturday night, April 6, and into Sunday and Monday, the sheriff’s office received reports from multiple businesses located along Hwy. 190 in Covington, Hwy. 59 in Mandeville and a Mandeville resident, that an unknown perpetrator had propelled some type of projectile into the glass windows of each business and the residence causing extensive damage to glasswork.

Investigators were able to recover surveillance footage of a vehicle seen near several of the businesses shortly before the damage occurred. The investigation led investigators to the home of Pratt.

On Friday, warrants were issued for Pratt’s arrest. Pratt was located and taken into custody without incident and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail for Felony Criminal Damage and Misdemeanor Criminal Damage.

Anyone with information about these crimes or who believes they may have been a victim is asked to contact Detective Moreno at 985-276-1331 or 985-898-2338.
