According to Vermilion Parish Sheriff Mike Couvillon, the Criminal Investigations Division is diligently working to identify the person or persons responsible for at least seven daytime burglaries. All the burglaries occurred in the North Vermilion / Meaux areas of Vermilion Parish over the last couple of weeks.
Sheriff Couvillon says it appears that the burglaries are taking place between the early morning hours and early afternoon when the victims were away from home. Additional patrol in these areas have been implemented.
Detectives have canvassed the areas that were victimized and are working closely with neighboring law enforcement agencies that are experiencing daytime residential burglaries with similarities, however at this time there are no apparent leads.
If anyone has any information with regards to these burglaries you are urged to contact the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Criminal Investigations Division at 898-4403 or 898-4402.
