JPSO seeks to identify men in Harvey burglary

Jefferson Parish authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying three people wanted in connection with a residential burglary in Harvey.

The burglary was reported early May 28 at a home in the 3800 block of Cimwood Drive.

Two men were captured on surveillance footage kicking in the front door. Both were armed and had their faces partially covered.

Before the men got into the home, one victim hid in a back room and another hid in a spare bedroom.

After the men forced their way in, they began to yell, “Police, get down,” according to the Sheriff’s Office.

A short time later, the victims heard the men leave, and they called 911.

A third burglar was seen with the other two men after the surveillance footage was reviewed.

Anyone with information about the burglars’ identities should contact Detective Wayne Aguillard Jr. at (504) 364-5300 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
