A Benton teen who bragged on social media about stealing 16 street signs from Bossier Parish neighborhoods can now add one more address to places he’s visited – the Bossier Maximum Security Facility on 2985 Old Plain Dealing Road.

Chase A. Grubbs, 17, of the 100 block of Mildred St. in Benton, was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with 16 counts of theft for stealing streets signs from the Haughton area.

A Bossier deputy began an investigation July 7 after he became aware of a picture on Snapchat that displayed stolen street signs in the back of a vehicle, with the caption, “Good A.. Night.”  Through the investigation, the deputy made contact with Grubbs, who had made the posting on Snapchat.  Grubbs told the deputy he and two friends just wanted to have fun by stealing the street signs, which were still in the back of Grubb’s car.  Sixteen Bossier Parish street signs were recovered from his vehicle.

Grubbs was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and faces a $16,000 bond.   Bossier Sheriff’s detectives are continuing their investigation, and charges on accomplices are possible.
