TPSO Warns of “The unexpected price of a workout!”

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards warns residents of a car thief or thieves are targeting unsuspected gym patrons. It began on April 2, 2019, as the TPSO and the Hammond Police Department began receiving multiple complaints from citizens reporting that their credit or debit cards were taken from their wallets and used to make excessive unauthorized purchases. It has been discovered the perpetrator(s) primarily targets elderly men who are going to the gym during the early morning hours. However, please don't be fooled. Thieves don't discriminate and anyone could be a target.

The investigative findings of these investigations have lead detectives to the unknown female in the attached photos. There are indications that the unidentified female is connected to these investigations. There is reason the believe she is a resident of Jefferson Parish and may live in the Westbank area.

If you recognize her or have information related to these crimes, please call Crime Stoppers at 800-554-5245. It's EASY and they pay in CASH. You aren't even required to give your name to be eligible to receive a cash reward.

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office would also like to remind residents to please lock your car doors and if you must leave your valuables behind, hide them. The best thing to do while going to the gym is to carry your belongings with you and place them in secured locker.
