Man left drugs, gun in de­signer bags at con­ve­nience store

Antelope Valley Press - - Second Front -

GAL­LIANO, La. — Louisiana au­thor­i­ties are per­plexed over why a man left ap­par­ent de­signer bags hold­ing drugs, a gun, cash and a dig­i­tal scale in a con­ve­nience store.

The man went into the store early Thurs­day and put the Louis Vuit­ton and Gucci bags on a chair, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease Fri­day.

“The em­ployee said he of­fered her $100 to ‘keep his bag,’” Lt. Bren­nan Math­erne, spokesman for Lafourche Par­ish Sher­iff Craig We­bre, said in an in­ter­view.

The worker de­clined, and the man walked out with­out the bags, the news re­lease said. A cus­tomer later pointed out that one of them held a hand­gun. It also held cash and a dig­i­tal scale, while the other bag held the drug Sub­ox­one and sus­pected metham­phetamine, ac­cord­ing to the state­ment.

Sur­veil­lance cam­eras got photos of the man and deputies hope to iden­tify him.
