CUT OFF, LA (WVUE) -

Sheriff Craig Webre announced a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of two suspects wanted in an aluminum theft which occurred earlier this month at a marine transportation company in Cut Off.

Detectives in Lafourche Parish opened an investigation after the business owner discovered several pieces of aluminum were missing from the property.

Upon reviewing surveillance video, detectives observed two unknown persons arrive at the business location on Saturday, November 7. 

The suspects placed multiple pieces of aluminum inside a vehicle and fled the scene. The incident took place around noon. 

The suspects appear to be two white males, and they were traveling in a gold-colored car, believed to be an older model Pontiac sedan. The video also shows the car is missing a hubcap on the rear driver-side wheel. The stolen aluminum is valued at several thousand dollars.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about this crime to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637. 

Tipsters will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 in cash if the information given leads to an arrest.
