Police Seek To Identify Suspect In Aggravated Burglary Of A Pharmacy

Golden Meadow Chief of Police Reggie Pitre announced a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted for committing an aggravated burglary of a pharmacy earlier this month. 

Just after 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, an unknown male suspect arrived at the drug store wearing a white shirt, shorts and a white bandana concealing his face, and he was brandishing a firearm. He shattered the glass door to the pharmacy and fled on foot. 

Approximately 20 minutes later, he returned to the scene wearing a red shirt but still dressed in shorts with the white bandana while carrying the firearm. Upon his return, the suspect entered the pharmacy, and attempted to break into a secure area where prescription medications were stored. After being unable to do so, he fled the scene again. The pharmacy owner found no missing items following the burglary.

Anyone who may be able to identify the suspect, or anyone with any knowledge of this crime, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637.
