Meatloaf thief on the loose in Denham Springs
DENHAM SPRINGS - Two law enforcement agencies are searching for a man who broke into a Livingston Parish restaurant and made his own meal.
Early Monday morning, the man broke into Cafe Pere-Dale on Florida Boulevard where he helped himself to some meatloaf, cheesecake, and the cash register.
"We're calling him the meatloaf bandit," said owner Waymond Dale.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office and the Denham Springs Police Department are both looking for the thief. The suspected thief was caught on surveillance video at a neighboring gas station before the break-in.
Also that night, a burglar alarm sounded at a hair salon across the street and a woman who had run out of gas said a man on foot demanded cigarettes from her. Law enforcement isn't sure if it was the same person as the restaurant burglar.
