Police arrest cable, internet service worker for stealing jewelry from customer

LAFOURCHE PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

Detectives with the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a utility service worker for stealing jewelry from a customer. The incident occurred Friday May 1, 2015 at a home on Hattie Street in Bayou Blue. Deputies arrested 38-year-old Lance Walker for the theft.

Police say that deputies responded to a call of the theft and learned that the last time the victim saw the jewelry was when a utility service worker, later identified as Walker, was installing television and internet services in her home. Detectives later learned that Walker pawned jewelry, matching the description of what was stolen.

After obtaining an arrest warrant, detectives took Walker into custody on Tuesday. He was booked in the Lafourche Parish Detention Center with two counts of theft. One count was a felony for stealing the jewelry and the other, a misdemeanor, was for pawning it.

Judge John E. Leblanc set Walker's bond at $7,000.
