UPDATE: More charges filed against ex Turkey Creek Police Chief

The following is a Press Release from the Louisiana State Police:

Louisiana State Police Region 2 detectives have updated the charges against the Ex Turkey Creek Police Chief, 43-year-old Robert Moreau.  In addition to the original charges, detectives have now included unauthorized use of an access card, attempted theft, theft of firearms, and abuse of office.

Further evidence was gathered indicating that Moreau would remove items from the retail store without paying for them then he would return the items and receive a store gift card for the amount.  Utilizing that store gift card, Moreau would purchase other items.  All of the transactions took place while Moreau was wearing his police uniform.

During a search of his home troopers recovered over 7,500 rounds of ammunition, 3 guns, and various other items.

Moreau remains in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center. This case remains under investigation and additional charges are expected.  


On October 6th, the Louisiana State Police Region 2 detectives assigned to the Lafayette Field Office arrested a Turkey Creek man for charges relating to theft.

In September of this year, detectives received information about a theft that occurred at a retail store in Lafayette Parish.  The complaint alleged that 43-year-old Robert Moreau of Turkey Creek, LA, was removing store items from the shelves then leaving with them without permission and without paying for them.  

Based on the complaint, detectives began their investigation.  During the course of investigation detectives gathered evidence indicating that Moreau, who at the time of the offense was employed as the chief of police in Turkey Creek, was wearing his uniform when the offense took place.  The evidence also indicated that Moreau did in fact leave the store without paying for the items and without permission.

With the evidence they obtained, detectives secured an arrest warrant for Moreau for felony theft.  Today, detectives arrested Moreau in Evangeline Parish and transported him to the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center where he was booked for the warrant.  This case remains under investigation and additional charges are anticipated.
