The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office has begun stationing plain- clothes deputies in convenient stores to combat a recent rash of smash-and-grab burglaries. So far, deputies have nabbed two juveniles and separate attempts.
Major Wendell Raborn of Iberia Parish Sheriffs Office said, “It’s called smash and grab for a reason, obviously they just smash and grab. Well we want to let them know, you smash we will grab you, you’re gonna go to jail, there are consequences for your actions. We need to do something to curtail this crime wave.”
