Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in a case where a man stole thousands in cash from a tire shop in Bayou Blue.
Just before 10 a.m. on January 29, 2022, two men in a blue Mitsubishi Outlander arrived at Royal Express Tires on Bayou Blue Road. After arrival, the passenger in the vehicle entered a nearby convenience store while the driver, wearing a bright green hooded sweatshirt, entered the office of the tire shop. The driver was captured on camera stealing several thousand dollars in cash from a desk in the office. Both the driver and passenger then returned to the vehicle and left the area.
