Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office investigators are hoping the public can help them catch a shoplifter they say committed several hit & run violations while making his getaway. The incidents happened yesterday near Causeway Blvd.

"The suspect has been observed on several occasions shoplifting items from two stores inside a local mall.  Yesterday evening, the suspect was observed inside the mall by a deputy, and fled upon seeing the deputy in his immediate area," officials said. "The suspect left the mall and entered what was later determined to be a stolen 2007 Chevrolet Silverado.  As he left the mall, the suspect committed three separate hit and run offenses before his vehicle  became disabled and he fled on foot."

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Wesley Doyle at (504) 875-3319 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
