Slidell man arrested for stealing motorcycle helmet off of makeshift memorial for biker
A Slidell man was arrested this weekend for stealing two motorcycle helmets from a makeshift memorial on the 100 block of Northshore Blvd. that was established by friends and family in the memory of James A. Shelton, who was killed at that location while riding his motorcycle on August 21 and was buried on August 24, 2007.
.... when asked about the helmets, Thomas Guice of Slidell allegedly said that the two helmets belonged to him and that Shelton was his cousin. Guice's story didn't pan when police called a member of the Shelton family who positively identified both helmets as his property and told police that he never gave anyone permission to remove the helmets ....... from the memorial.
