SLIDELL, LA (WAFB) -
Police say a former employee of a seafood business in Slidell, LA carefully planned his night of crime, but had one fatal flaw in his plan: a very bad disguise.
According to police, the former employee of Kenney's Seafood, 23-year-old Richard Boudreaux, left his house last Tuesday night with the intent of going on a burglary spree in order to make some quick cash.
Police say Boudreaux dressed in all camouflage, wore gloves to prevent leaving fingerprints, and packed burglary tools. Everything was going as planned until Boudreaux realized he forgot his mask to cover his identity.
Remembering that his former place of employment had surveillance cameras, Boudreaux improvised and found a bucket to put over his head as he scoured the business, looking for money; however, the surveillance cameras caught a glimpse of his face which ultimately led to police identifying Boudreaux as the burglar.
Boudreaux was able to get away with money from the cash register, then went to another nearby business, Jerry's Buy and Sell pawn shop, and attempted to burglarize that business as well. Police say when Boudreaux was unable to gain entry into Jerry's Buy and Sell, he gave up for the night and went home.
Slidell Police were able to obtain an arrest warrant for Boudreaux, and arrested him at him home. Boudreaux was charged him with simple burglary of a business and attempted simple burglary of a business.
Boudreaux was additionally charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia for items found in his home during the time of arrest.
Boudreaux told detectives the reason he broke into Kenney's Seafood was because he was having money issues and had "bad blood" with the owner. Additionally, Boudreaux said he tried to break into Jerry's Buy and Sell to obtain a gun because he was afraid of the possibility of future gun control laws being passed.
