The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday released surveillance photos of a woman who entered a school on Feb. 2 during school hours and stole credit cards from a teacher’s purse in an unoccupied classroom.
The surveillance photos also show a man who accompanied her to the school in a light-colored, possibly silver SUV. Deputies declined to identify the school.
Detectives later discovered the stolen credit cards were used by the man to purchase gift cards from a Prairieville Winn-Dixie, said Maj. Kevin Hanna. A short time later, the man attempted to purchase several more gift cards at the Gonzales Walgreens, but the transaction was declined.
The Sheriff’s Office asks that anyone with information on this case contact detectives at (225) 621-INFO (4636) or text 847411 to an anonymous tip line from any cellular device, or call Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-STOP (7867). To be eligible for a cash reward, you must contact Crime Stoppers immediately.
