ARCOLA — Tangipahoa Parish sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man accused of stealing bags of rice bran this weekend from a feed mill on U.S. 51 in Arcola.
A man drove up to Land of Lakes Purina Feed Mill in a black 2000 Ford F150 hauling a 16-foot trailer and parked at the company’s loading deck and began putting bags of rice bran in the trailer, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto said in a news release.
The man saw he was being watched, so he jumped in his truck and drove north on U.S. 51 with his lights off, Panepinto said. The man is described as black, about 5 feet, 6 inches and about 150 pounds.
He was wearing a black, white and grey striped hooded sweatshirt.
Anyone with information regarding this burglary should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 554-5245.
