On July 14, 2014, a senior citizen was approached in Walmart by someone pretending to be a family member of his wife. The individual gave specific information that lead the potential victim to believe he was sincere, then proceeded to ask for money to repair his car. Based on this belief the victim gave the suspect $50.00. The victim determined later that afternoon that this individual who approached him was not his wife's relative, therefore, he contacted OPD.
OPD investigators began an investigation and was able to determine the suspect to be 33 year old Frank LaHaye, of 235 7th Avenue Krotz La. Lahaye was picked up yesterday in Port Barre by PBpd. OPD investigators later interviewed LaHaye and a short time later he confessed to the crime. LaHaye is presently in the OPD jail charged with Thefts of Assets from an Aged Person.
Wanted: Frank LaHaye 7/2210
The man arrested for exposing and fondling himself inside the St Landry Parish Courthouse, is wanted again by police. This time he is wanted for extorting money from a disabled person.
Opelousas Police have issued a warrant for Frank LaHaye, charging him with four felony charges of thefts of assets from a disabled person.
Police say LaHaye has received about $3,000, by lying to a disabled man, convincing him to pay LaHaye the money.
If you know his whereabouts, you're asked to call Opelousas Police.
TV10 has learned the man arrested twice in St Landry Parish for exposing himself was already on parole.
Frank LaHaye was arrested near the intersection of Market and Vine last week after police say they captured him a second time for exposing himself in public.
Opelousas police say they then learned LaHaye was on parole, as a result of a conviction in Iberia parish.
LaHaye was arrested two weeks earlier for the same crime inside the St Landry Parish Courthouse.
Because LaHaye is now listed as a parole offender that should mean he no longer qualifies for bond and must remain in custody pending a revocation hearing that could result in LaHaye being sent back to jail for his original conviction in Iberia Parish.
