The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance in identifying an aggravated burglary suspect. In the early morning hours of February 8, 2018, surveillance cameras at a Terrytown fire station show what appears to be a white male enter through a door to the bay area, where the fire trucks are housed. The suspect then stole fire equipment and tools. Prior to fleeing with the property, the suspect was observed retrieving a handgun from his waistband and pointing it at a door where fire personnel were present, possibly after hearing a noise from within the living quarters. Some of the stolen property was recently recovered after being abandoned in Plaquemines Parish.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of this suspect or on any of the stolen property is asked to call Detective Craig Toups of our Burglary/Theft Section at 504-364-5300 or contact Crimestoppers.
