The Lafourche Parish Sheriff Office has announced a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for a vehicle burglary in late July on Peltier Drive in Raceland wherein several thousand dollars in cash was stolen.

At some point in the hours that followed, the vehicle was burglarized, and the cash and tablet were stolen. The resident discovered the burglary at around 10 a.m. that morning.
