Deputies with the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office are seeking information as to the identity of five people wanted in connection with an early morning burglary that took place shortly after 4 a.m. on Tuesday, October 22.

Deputies responded to an alarm activation at a business in the 1000 block of Coteau Rodaire Road in Arnaudville. After further investigation, it was determined that five individuals, all wearing masks and hoodies, were seen on video surveillance at 4 a.m.

The individuals were seen on video driving a pickup truck in reverse through the front window of the business. After several attempts, they were able to remove the ATM and then fled the scene.

Investigators also determined that the truck used in the video was previously reported stolen at approximately 2:30 this morning from a residence in the 1800 block of Anse Broussard Road. The truck was located this afternoon in a rural area of Arnaudville.

Police are asking anyone who may have information as to the identity of the individuals to contact the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-394-3071, via the SMPSO Facebook page, or St. Martin Crime Stoppers at 441-3030.
