ELMWOOD, LA (WVUE) -

A couple had their car stolen Tuesday morning at an Elmwood gas station

According to initial Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department reports, the couple arrived at the Race Trac on Jefferson Highway around 7:30 a.m.

The man went inside the station to use the ATM while the woman waited in the car.

At that point, a suspect, later identified as 36-year-old David Thompson, jumped into the driver’s seat, according to police.

A brief struggle ensued before Thompson told the woman to get out of the car, she told police.

Thompson then fled the scene in the stolen car, with the stolen purse.

Thompson was caught a short time later near the intersection of Earhart Boulevard and South Claiborne Avenue.
