A reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted in connection with burglaries that occurred at three Larose businesses overnight, Sheriff Craig Webre said.

Deputies learned that the suspect began his spree at around 1 a.m. Monday. The burglaries occurred at a daiquiri shop on West Main Street, a fire safety services company and a convenience store on East Main Street. In the convenience store burglary, the suspect used his car to drive through the doors after unsuccessful attempts to break the glass doors.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the suspect as the crimes were in progress. Deputies said he stole merchandise and several hundred dollars during the crimes.

The suspect is described as a slender black male, approximately 5’10” tall. He was wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, light blue pants and a Pittsburgh Steelers winter cap. He was driving a dark-colored, late-model Nissan Altima with the hubcaps removed. Detectives are asking anyone who can identify the suspect to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637.
