Former Orleans Parish Juvenile Court Judge David Bell surrendered to Jefferson Parish authorities Monday.
Bell was booked on a criminal conspiracy and racketeering charges connected to the massive auto-theft ring broken up by police earlier this year, the New Orleans Advocate is reporting.
According to the Advocate, Bell "co-owned a New Orleans scrap yard said to be part of a scheme responsible for $2.5 million in losses in Jefferson Parish and to have accounted for almost one-third of the parish’s auto thefts in 2014 and 2015." See full story.
