BURGLAR CAUGHT

On December 12, 2002 the Thibodaux Police Department received a call in reference to a possible burglary in progress of a residence located at 110 East 9th Street. The caller informed the police that a subject had been observed entering the residence through a window. The caller advised that the suspect appeared to be in his early 20’s, slim build, with brown hair. He was wearing dark colored pants and a gray jacket. He had arrived at the location on a green bicycle.

Responding officers checked the residence, but the suspect had left the area prior to the police’s arrival. Witnesses in the area advised the police that a subject fitting the description had been seen in the area, riding on a green bicycle, approximately 45 minuets earlier. The subject was also seen entering a residence located next door to the burglary location. Officers responded to the location where contact was made with a subject, who identified himself as James Martin, 18 y/o of 2332 Choctaw Road, Thibodaux, La.

According to witnesses at the scene Martin was identified as the subject seen entering the residence through the window. Martin was taken into custody and transported to the Thibodaux Police Department where he later admitted to entering the residence. Martin was then charged with one count of burglary and one count of Possession of Stolen Things, after it was learned that the bicycle in his possession had been reported as stolen on December 9, 2002.

Martin was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center to await a court appearance.
