TERRYTOWN, LA (WVUE) -

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is searching for a man accused of aggravated burglary at a fire station.   

In the early morning hours of Feb. 8, surveillance cameras at a Terrytown fire station show what appears to be a man enter through a door to the bay area, where the fire trucks are housed. 

The suspect then stole fire equipment and tools.  Prior to fleeing with the property, the suspect was observed grabbing a handgun from his waistband and pointing it at a door where fire personnel were present, possibly after hearing a noise from within the living quarters. 

Some of the stolen property was recently recovered after being abandoned in Plaquemines Parish.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect or on any of the stolen property is asked to call Detective Craig Toups of our Burglary/Theft Section at 504-364-5300 or contact Crimestoppers.
