Vermilion Parish deputies say they are investigating several kick-in burglaries in different areas of the parish.

According to Vermilion Parish Sheriff Mike Couvillon, seven residential burglaries were reported on October 10, 2018, in the Abbeville, Kaplan and North Vermilion areas.

An investigation, Couvillon says, is in the early stages but TVs, handguns, jewelry and a safe were taken from these burglaries and detectives are actively working these cases.

Couvillon says that detectives are currently searching for an older model 2008-2013 white Chevy 4-door pickup truck with possible 20-22” chrome rims.  The vehicle, police say, was believed to be occupied by four men who are allegedly responsible for all of these crimes.
