JCPenney Hopes To Catch A Thief

The new Louisiana Avenue JC Penney's was broken into Wednesday and company officials believe this is the latest in a string of robberies the store has been experiencing lately. On Monday a store near Covington was hit with the same M.O.....the robbers come in through a hole in the roof that they cut and then lowered themselves down with ropes. According to the Shreveport Times the burglers then disabled the alarm system and walked around the store stuffing jewelry, clothing and other items into plastic bags. In Covington, the theives made off with over $1.5 million worth of goods. National Jeweler has more on the Covington heist and the Advertiser has details on the Lafayette robbery. JC Penney's is located in the new Stirling Lafayette Shopping Center along with Target, Petco, Lane Bryant, Rue 21, Cacique, Hibbett Sports, Maurices, Squire Formal Wear, AT&T, GameStop, GNC, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service, Chick-fil-A, and Taco Bell.
