Sheriff Greg Champagne is requesting the public’s assistance in locating Joe Joseph Walker Jr., a 41-year-old male from Bayou Vista, Louisiana.
Walker has a warrant issued for his arrest for one count of Attempted Theft of a Motor Vehicle (A.T.V.), and one count of Attempted Theft (Utility Trailer), granted by the 29th Judicial District Court Honorable Judge Connie Aucoin.

Walker’s last known address is 442 Neptune Lane in Bayou Vista, Louisiana. Walker is described as a white male, approximately 5’2” tall and weighs approximately 150 lbs.
