Detectives make an arrest, recover property in December residential burglary

Detectives have made an arrest in a residential burglary that occurred last month in Galliano.

On December 31, deputies responded to a residential burglary on West 124th Street after a family returning from a camping trip found their home had been burglarized. Forced entry was made on a side door, and several thousand dollars of valuable items including jewelry and cash were stolen.

Through investigation, Lance Cheramie was developed as a suspect, and he was found to have pawned several pieces of jewelry matching the description of some of the stolen property.

Detectives obtained a search warrant for Cheramie’s residence in Larose. During the search, they discovered some of the stolen property from the burglary, and a warrant was obtained for his arrest.

Then on Friday, January 3, deputies made contact with Cheramie during a traffic stop where he was arrested and booked into the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex in Thibodaux. He was charged with one count of Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling. His bail is set at $20,000.

This investigation is continuing.
