Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to remind all motorists to obey posted speed limits and traffic signs or signals. 

“My Officers are out watching traffic,” he said. “You are required by law to have a current motor vehicle inspection sticker, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance in your vehicle any time that the vehicle is in operation.”

Chief Robinson also advised that anyone driving the vehicle should also carry a valid driver’s license.

“We’ve had reports of vehicles being spray painted,” he said. “The damages can be costly. I want to commend Sgt. Ellis for his hard work in getting the matter resolved. Sgt. Ellis arrested two juveniles for spray painting vehicles. Parents please talk to your children about doing the right things. People work very hard to purchase vehicles. They should not have suffer from another person’s careless acts.”

Chief Robinson encourages citizens to come by Rayville Police Department at 900 Harrison Street or call (318) 728-441 if you need his help in any way.
