LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Lafayette police have made two more arrests in the theft of a 14-foot inflatable duck belonging to the Boys and Girls Club of Acadiana.
The giant yellow inflatable duck sporting black sunshades and a bill that looks like big red lips went missing Feb. 27. It has since been returned.
Police say while the suspects avoided most security and traffic cameras, one surveillance picture showed a four-door Chevy Silverado with the inflatable duck in the bed.
Lafayette Police Cpl. Paul Mouton says in a news release that Zachary Paul Quibodeaux of Lafayette and Tre Michael Leon of Rayne were arrested Thursday, each on one count of felony theft.
Two others - Kyle Cormier and Garcon Cormier - were arrested March 5 on one count each of felony theft.
