Louisiana State Troopers are planning to issue an official commendation to Operations- West Bureau Detective Tanya Oglesby. Vacationing in New Orleans, Louisiana, on the evening of August 9, 2015, Detective Oglesby provided a tip to local Louisiana State Troopers after noticing a group of individuals walking down Bourbon Street in the French Quarter who displayed movements consistent with attempts to conceal a weapon. As a result of her astute observation and subsequent identification to police, Troopers patrolling the area apprehended three suspects and recovered three illegally possessed firearms. A Louisiana State Police press release stated “the arrests were made possible due to the vigilance and assistance of an off-duty LAPD officer visiting the Crescent City.” Without a doubt, Detective Oglesby’s good judgement is a credit to her profession and the Department.
