Update: St. John Sheriff’s Office asking for help identifying theft suspect

Detectives with the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office are seeking the public’s help identifying and locating a theft suspect dating back three weeks.

According to authorities, a theft occurred at a business in the 100 block of Belle Terre Boulevard in LaPlace on Dec. 27.

When asked for details concerning the alleged crime, a Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said providing those to the public would hamper the investigation during the suspect interview process.

Anyone who may be able to identify the man is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office TIPS line at 985-359-TIPS or the Criminal Investigations Division at 985-359-8644.

Tips can be submitted at stjohnsheriff.org/submitatip.php.

Police say the man pictured is connected to a LaPlace theft in December.
