lootDeputies in three parishes are trying to solve what’s described as a million dollar burglary.

In Washington Parish, divers spend the day on Friday searching a lake near the Pearl River for guns, porcelain, and other collectables.

Deputies say the items were stolen from an attorney’s home in Lamar County, Mississippi, last year.

According to deputies, the items began showing up in Jefferson Parish.  There’s been one arrest in the case, but several more people are believed to have been involved.

Washington Parish deputies say, with the law closing in, the remaining thieves dumped much of the stolen property in the lake.
