(WMC-TV) - Nineteen cars were broken into overnight in the Ridgeway community, and one car was even completely stolen.

The pile of glass in Micah Taylor's driveway Wednesday will cost her $158 out of pocket.

"Insurance doesn't cover that deductible," she said. "And they hit this whole cove."

The slew of break-ins happened all within a few blocks on Crimmins Cove and Sulgrave and Spey drives.

"I'm upset about it. We have a nice neighborhood and there's no sense in this," said Taylor.

Among the victims is a United States Marine off serving his country, a Tennessee State Trooper, in-laws visiting from out of town, and a guy who shares a name with the most famous pop star of all time.

"A state of shock, disbelief," said victim Michael Jackson. "I woke up this morning and my car was missing ... I thought maybe I was daydreaming. I walk back and my car wasn't there ... It's a used Acura, but it's mine. That's the thing about it, it's mine. It's not theirs, it's mine. And I want it."

Besides getting his car back Jackson wants the same thing as Taylor.

"I'd love for [police] to catch them," said Taylor.

If you can help solve this case call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.

It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
