A vending machine theft suspect is being sought by the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office.
On September 5, 2015 deputies responded to the Sugar Mill on Irish Bend Road in reference to a theft of cash and damage to the coin-operated machine. Authorities say the operator of the machine went to refill it and discovered the empty and damaged machine.
Deputies were able to locate surveillance video which shows a male suspect walking near the mill holding part of the vending machine mechanism.
Over $4,000 in damages and loss were reported and detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect. Anyone who may have information may contact the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-828-1960 or 985-384-1622. Information can also be submitted through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
