Suspect In Armed Robbery Of Lilly’s Grocery In New Iberia On The Loose

Police in New Iberia are looking for a suspect in an armed robbery Monday afternoon at Lilly’s Grocery on South Hopkins Street.

Witnesses say the suspect is a black male who was wearing a black shirt and had on black pants and armed with a handgun. The suspect was possibly driving a gold Nissan Maxima.

Call the Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-369-3711 if you have any information.

Meanwhile, Sheriff Louis Ackal sending out a reminder to drivers: lock up your vehicles and don’t leave any valuables inside when unattended. Sheriff Ackal says the majority of vehicle burglaries happen when they are left unlocked, and criminals have been know to just go from vehicle to vehicle, looking for unlocked ones with valuable items inside.

“Criminals are lazy and will preferably use the least amount of effort necessary to commit a burglary,” says Sheriff Ackal. “However, a small amount of effort, like locking a vehicle, will go a long way to help prevent crime.”

Also, if a citizen of Iberia Parish wants to discuss organizing a Neighborhood Watch Group for their area of the community, you are asked to contact Sgt. Anthony Green at 337-369-3714.
