Investigators with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office need the public’s help with identifying a man wanted in connection with several camp burglaries in the Belle River area.

On March 29, deputies were advised of the burglaries near Big Goddel Bayou, which is located near Pierre Part and Belle River. They say these burglaries happened between the evening hours of Sunday, March 24 and the early morning hours of Friday, March 29, 2019. These camps are only accessible by water.

Investigators say the suspect rummaged through the camps, taking several items, such as tools, battery chargers, flashlights and weapons.
