3 arrested in burglary of Skip Bertman’s home
Question of the Day
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Skip Bertman and his family can sleep easy again.
Less than 72 hours after burglars sneaked into their home and stole a few championship rings, Baton Rouge police arrested three teens Monday.
Cpl. Don Coppola Jr. tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1nJS0fB ) Moises Marquez, 18, and two 16-year-old boys were booked with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
The trio sneaked into the home at 4:35 a.m. Saturday through an unlocked bathroom window that Marquez intentionally left unlocked during a previous visit so he could get back into the home, Coppola said.
Once they got in, Marquez led them to the rings.
Police did not say how many rings were taken.
During the scuffle, Marquez covered his face so Bertman would not recognize him, but Bertman was able to recognize Marquez’s “Hispanic descent,” Coppola said. Despite Bertman’s best efforts to detain them, Marquez and the two juveniles escaped the residence with the rings.
Coppola said no one was injured in the struggle.
During Bertman’s 18-year stint as LSU’s head baseball coach from 1984 to 2001, the program won five national titles at the College World Series. He also coached the 1996 U.S. Olympic team to a bronze medal finish in Summer Games in Atlanta.
He retired as baseball coach in 2001 and was named the school’s athletic director, a position he held until 2008.
