THOBODAUX, LA (WVUE) -

Thibodaux Chief of Police Bryan Zeringue announced the arrest Monday of Michael Braud, 48, on burglary and theft charges.

According to Zeringue, the arrest stems from an incident on Friday, Nov. 27 in a Wal Mart parking lot.

At approximately 11:21 a.m., Thibodaux police officers responded to a report from Wal Mart of a vehicle burglary in progress.

Officers were advised that the complainant stated that she walked out of the store, and noticed a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt rummaging through her purse.

Upon arrival, officers observed the man they later identified as Braud fleeing the area on foot.

Officers then made contact with Braud and detained him pending the investigation.

Through their investigation, officers say they located a pack of ribeye steaks in Braud's possession, and police say the steaks were later discovered to be stolen from Wal Mart. 

According to Chief Zeringue, officers also found money that was stolen from the complainant's purse which was located inside her vehicle.

After the victim confirmed a positive identification on Braud, he was arrested and transported to the Thibodaux Police Department.

Braud is currently incarcerated at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on a $3,300 bond.
