Police Seek Man Wanted For Stealing $500 Of Fuel In Fourchon

Crime Stoppers Bayou Region is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who stole over $500 of diesel from a Fourchon truck plaza.

Just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday, September 16, an unidentified male driving an 18-wheeler pumped over $500 of diesel fuel into his truck at the Kajun Truck Plaza located at 640 A.O. Rappelet Road in Fourchon. He then entered the store and attempted to pay the cashier with a fuel card commonly used by trucking companies.
