A recent break-in in Erath is similar to recent burglaries that happened in the Meaux and Maurice areas of Vermilion Parish about six weeks ago. Darryl Leblanc, spokesperson for the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office says they can't prove the same person or people are behind the break-ins, but there "may be some similarities."
He said the sheriff's office is working with Lafayette and Acadia Parish law enforcement agencies to figure out if burglaries in those parishes are connected the ones in Vermilion Parish.
Leblanc encourages residents to call the sheriff's office to report suspicious people and activity - 898-4402.
