Detectives Investigating Armed Robbery Inside Galliano Home

Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of two subjects responsible for an armed robbery last week in which they broke into a Galliano home and tied up the victims during the robbery.

Just after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 13, deputies responded to an armed robbery reported at a residence in the 100 block of East 150th Street in Galliano. Deputies learned a man and woman were sleeping inside their home when two subjects, who both appeared to be males, wearing masks barged into their bedroom.

One of the masked subjects pointed a gun at the man lying in bed, threatening to shoot him if he moved. The other stood over the woman brandishing a baseball bat. The two masked subjects then tied up the couple and demanded money. Then they rummaged through the home and stole a safe, an undetermined amount of cash, and several other items of value. Upon exiting the home, they also stole a sport-utility vehicle from the residence.

After the masked subjects left, the man and woman freed themselves and called for help.

Detectives were called to the scene, and through investigation, they determined the suspects made entry by breaking a rear window at the residence. Golden Meadow Police discovered the stolen vehicle abandoned on Louviere Lane, after being alerted by a concerned citizen.

As detectives continue to investigate this case, they are now asking for the public's assistance in hopes of identifying the two unknown subjects.

Anyone with any information on this case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637. Tips can also be submitted using the TipSubmit Mobile application or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org

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.
