If you know where 21-year-old Brayton J. Galentine of Lafayette is, officials with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office would like to speak with him.

It's not often you hear of stories like this.

Major Ginny Higgins says they are still looking for this man who they say burglarized a home and stole a car right out of the driveway.

One weird aspect of this situation is the fact that Higgins says Galentine left his own car in the driveway of the home he burglarized!

Galetine is wanted on the following charges:

  • Simple Arson (Felony)
  • Simple Burglary (Felony)
  • Theft

All of this was reported on Tuesday, January 9 at a home in the 7000 clock of Main Highway in St. Martinville

Higgins says two days later, the stolen 2017 Ford Fusion was found burned out near Lake Fausse Point State Park.
