Need help locating a theft suspect
Help is needed to solve the Acadie Parish Crime of the Week.
Law enforcement along the I-10 corridor investigated a wave of thefts of various types of coin-operated machines from local businesses. According to investigators, these thefts mainly occurred at convenience stores where the air machines were forced into and the money was stolen.
In some cases a torch was used to cut into the coin box, while others were penetrated using force with a crowbar-like instrument.
Law enforcement identified a vehicle suspected of being involved in the thefts. It is described as a 2001 Ford Expedition, beige in color. Investigators say the vehicle is in the possession of 41-year-old Edward Carlton Little. He is six-foot-three and weighs 240 pounds.
Little has an outstanding arrest warrant in Acadia Parish for failure to appear in court on similar charges.
