SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - The Sulphur Police Department is investigating over 100 vehicle burglaries that occurred early Thursday morning, according to Sgt. Nicholas Johnson.
Sulphur Police said they were dispatched around 1 a.m. Thursday to a hotel saying they had multiple vehicle burglaries. Coats says they set up patrol units at other local hotels, but the suspects waited until the police cars had left the parking lot of at least four other hotels in the area before breaking into those vehicles as well.
Coats said the suspects, five in total, were only looking for one thing in the vehicles: weapons.
Coats said the getaway car had Texas license plates and that the suspects most likely are not from this area.
If anyone has information on the burglaries call Sulphur Police or Crimestoppers.
