Public’s Help Sought to Identify Liquor Thief Caught on Camera Again

A suspect who stole alcoholic beverages from a convenience store in August was caught on camera committing the same crime at the same store last Thursday evening. Lafourche Parish Detectives obtained surveillance video in both incidents and are again asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect.

At around 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 12, the suspect entered the Jester’s Court Too convenience store, located at 5375 LA Highway 308 in Mathews, and stole several bottles of liquor before fleeing the scene.

In that incident, the suspect fled the scene in a white Dodge Charger after stealing four bottles of liquor.

Anyone with information that can help identify the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting “GIVEATIP” plus your message to 274637.
