Felon wanted in Lafourche Parish

A 30-year-old convicted felon is wanted by the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Craig Were said he's asking for public help to locate Justin Paul Breaux, 30, of Gheens. Breaux has an outstanding warrant for his arrest with bail set around $100,000. 

Breaux has been arrested more than 10 times in Lafourche since 2008, mostly for crimes such as theft, burglary, possession of stolen property and battery .

His last arrest was on May 22, 2018 when he was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of meth. 

He posted bail on June 1, 2018, but then failed to show up in court. A warrant was issued for his arrest in September 2019. Investigators have followed up on several leads, but have been unable to locate Breaux. 

Anyone with knowledge Justin Breaux’s whereabouts is asked to submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers Bayou Region by phone at 1-800-743-7433 or online at Tips can also be submitted using the P3 Tips app on your mobile device. Tipsters could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 in cash if the information leads to an arrest.
