An Erath man is behind bars in connection with the theft of cash from an Abbeville convenience store.
Police say they arrested 46-year-old Gregory Girouard, Sr., after tipsters identified him from surveillance pictures broadcast on KATC.
Girourard allegedly confessed to stealing a bank envelope off the counter of a convenience store in the 300 block of Veterans Memorial Drive. That envelope, police say, contained several thousand dollars in cash.
Girourard is charged with felony theft. He remains in the Vermilion Parish Jail on $5,000 bond.
