Suspect Caught on Video in Chackbay Bar Burglary

Sheriff Craig Webre announced a reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of a suspect who burglarized a Chackbay business in October.

Last month, detectives began investigating a burglary which took place during the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 21 at a bar located along LA Highway 20 in Chackbay. Several machines, including poker machines, an ATM, a juke box and others, had been burglarized. Investigators learned an unknown male subject gained entry through an adjacent office and then proceeded into the bar through an air intake vent. The subject disabled several security cameras, but detectives were able to obtain some video footage of the suspect. Several thousand dollars were stolen during the burglary.

Investigators are asking for help in solving this crime. Anyone who can identify the suspect, or anyone with any other information about this crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting “GIVEATIP” plus your message to 274637.
