Two vehicle Televisions stolen


On August 21, 2004, the Thibodaux Police Departmentreceived a complaint of two vehicle style televisions stolen from the interiorof a vehicle parked on Rubyiat Street in Thibodaux.  

The complainant/owner told the responding officer, AnthonyStelly, that the two televisions were taken from the interior of the vehiclesometime between August 20th and the reporting time that day. The complainant advised that the vehicle had been parked in the same spotfor the past two weeks.  The complainant explained that she entered the vehicle onAugust 20th, the previous day; to retrieve some music CD’s andobserved the two televisions inside the vehicle. The complainant described the two televisions to Officer Stelly alongwith the serial and model numbers.  Sheadvised that the televisions were valued at approximately $1,000.00. 

Officer Stelly examined the vehicle thoroughly and couldnot locate any signs of forced entry.  Thecomplainant explained to Officer Stelly that the rear door of the vehicle wasnot locked.  Officer Stelly thenprocessed the area of the unlocked rear door’s outer and interior surfaces forfingerprints.  Officer Stelly wasable to lift several latent prints from these areas where it was suspected thatthe thief made entry.  These latentswere entered into evidence at the Thibodaux Police Department. 

Detective Laura Guise, assigned this vehicle burglary case,forwarded these latent prints to the Terrebonne Parish Crime Lab, where aDetective with Terrebonne Parish Sheriffs Office, trained in the use of theAutomated Fingerprint Identification System, (AFIS),  entered them into the system in an attempt to gain a match. A short time later, the AFIS responded with a match belonging to theright thumb of a suspect, Ray Gilton. 

Using this information, it was learned form the owner ofthe vehicle that she did not know Gilton; therefore, his prints should not havebeen recovered from her vehicle. 

A warrant was then obtained for the arrest of Ray Giltonfor one count of simple burglary with a bond set in the amount of $10,000.00. Gilton has not been arrested for this crime at the time of this release.
