Breaux Bridge, LA (KPEL News) - The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Department in south Louisiana needs the public's help solving a burglary that happened earlier this year.

Unfortunately, crimes happen every day across Acadiana, and solving these crimes isn't as easy as popular television would suggest. Law enforcement officials often tell us that, while they do a thorough job of collecting evidence and talking to witnesses, an arrest doesn't typically happen within a 45-minute time constraint.

What is true is that detectives, deputies, and police officers work diligently to close cases, but some of the trails go cold. However, they don't go away, as evidenced by the most current case at the top of the St. Martin Parish Crime Stoppers radar.

At midnight on June 7, 2023, Henderson Police responded to a complaint of a burglary at a business located in the 2900 block of Grand Point Hwy.

When they arrived, officers discovered that a black male subject captured on surveillance camera, forcibly entered an office inside the business and stole approximately $10,000.00 in cash.
