JEFF DAVIS PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Jennings man is accused of stealing crawfish from a farmer's field, according to a news release from the Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office.

Christopher Ivey, commander of the criminal investigations division, said authorities received a call on Sunday night from a farmer on Hwy. 90 at Farm Supply Road about a man in his crawfish pond.

The farmer reported that he was checking his ponds around 8:30 p.m., when he spotted the man, dressed in all black, including a black mask.

The farmer and another man surrounded the suspect.

"They had him at gunpoint. When we arrived, we found him in the pond kneeling under control," said Jeff Davis Sheriff Ivy Woods.

Deputies arrived and arrested 44-year-old James Darrel Dubroc. He was booked for trespassing and theft of crawfish.

Authorities said Dubroc has been accused of stealing crawfish previously.

Dubroc was booked into the parish jail.

No bond has been set.

According to the Louisiana theft of crawfish law, crawfish theft can result in up to 10 years in prison and up to $3,000 in fines for stealing $500 or more worth of crawfish. Less than $500 is a misdemeanor.
