LPSO Still

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating an early-morning burglary at the Dollar General Storm in Gray on Tuesday morning.

Shortly after 12:30 a.m. on September 22, LPSO deputies and detectives were called to a burglary alarm at the Dollar General at 3410 Bayou Blue Road in Gray. When deputies arrived, they noticed the glass had been broken on the front door.

With help from deputies from the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office, deputies searched the building, but no one was found inside.

Investigators reviewed surveillance video from the scene and observed an unknown subject break the glass and enter the building. The person then goes to a locked safe and attempts to open it. When the safe does not open, the suspect leaves the store.

LPSO said it doesn't appear that anything of value was taken from the store during the burglary.

Because of the video's poor quality, LPSO is unable to identify the suspect in the incident, though the person was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans at the time of the break-in.

Anyone with any knowledge of this incident is asked to submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers Bayou Region by phone at 1-800-743-7433 or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org. Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers through the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office mobile app. Tipsters could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 in cash if the information leads to an arrest.
