Suspect Sought In Theft At Duhon’s Gun Shop In Abbeville
Vermilion Parish authorities are looking for whoever tried to steal guns from an Abbeville gun store.
After Abbeville Police’s K-9 unit began tracking, all of the guns taken from the store were recovered near the edge of a sugar cane field in close proximity to Duhon’s Gun Shop. Also, a bag and a bicycle were found in the same area.
Vermilion Parish Sheriff Mike Couvillon says a substantial amount of the suspect’s blood was collected at the scene.
Video surveillance from the gun shop shows the suspect wearing a gray sweat shirt with a hoodie. His face was covered and he was wearing gloves. He appears to be between 5’8” and 6’, slim to medium build. His race has not yet been determined.
The bike is described as a West Port Beach Cruiser style bike rusty red/burgundy in color with a white metal basket on the front handle bars and lime green passenger foot pegs on the back.
