Detectives Seeking Suspect In Walmart Theft

Suspected thief

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help to identify a man who stole items from a Mathews department store last month.

On Friday, May 31, a male subject stole home theater equipment from the Wal-Mart Supercenter store in Mathews and fled the scene in a vehicle.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the male subject who is described as approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall with dark hair and several tattoos on both arms. Detectives say he was likely driving a vehicle that was dark blue or purple in color.

Investigators are asking anyone who can help identify this subject to contact Bayou Region Crime Stoppers at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting “GIVEATIP” plus your message to 274637. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 in cash if the information given leads to an arrest.

Tips can also be submitted using the TipSubmit Mobile application, online at, or via the “Submit a Tip” tab on the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office official Facebook Page.
