Man using stolen gas card may be key to solving Lafourche burglary


Police are offering a reward for information that can lead to the arrest of a man caught on camera using a gas card stolen as part of a larger burglary.

According to police, the suspect in the above photo used a gas card stolen from a house on Blue Ridge Drive. The gas card was stolen as part of a suspected burglary on the home that took place in December.

According to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's office, residents living on Blue Ridge Drive returned home from vacation and discovered their safe, a laptop computer, a gas card and other items missing. Police said that officers came to inspect the suspected burglary, but found no sign of forced entry. The missing safe was later found several streets over.

Deputies later learned that the stolen gas card was used at a Bayou Blue convenience story on Dec. 29 and obtained a surveillance photo of the man who used the card. Police believe finding him will help solve the burglary.

Anyone with information that could identify the man in this photo or anyone with information on this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433.
