Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre is asking for the public’s help to identify suspects involved in thefts and attempted thefts which occurred on St. Anthony Street in Mathews early Sunday morning.
On Sunday, February 17, deputies began investigating the theft of a boiling pot and a boiling pot set up from residences on St. Anthony Street. Several other residents reported having items on their property moved to the roadside in an apparent attempt to steal from several properties.
