State Arrested on Aggravated Burglary Charges

State police have placed a trooper on paid administrative leave after his arrest for aggravated burglary.

41-year-old Jeffery Martin Covington was taken into custody by Alexandria Police Thursday morning at a home on Bayou Crossing Drive.

He’s charged with the break-in, but also with malfeasance, because of his status as a law enforcement officer.
