Semi that crashed Monday on I-10 spills toilet paper, thieves help themselves make off with loads


One of the tractor trailers involved in Monday’s fatal crash on I-10 near Breaux Bridge was hauling a fully loaded trailer of toilet paper that spilled onto the interstate. 

Breaux Bridge Police say when the wrecker service assisting with the cleanup moved the rig as well as the cargo in order to free up their flatbed truck for more cleanup, some thieves pulled up and helped themselves to the items.

Pictures of the theft taking place have been released by police who need the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects. 

The toilet paper still belonged to the company involved in the crash, according to police, and at no time was anyone allowed to help themselves to the items.  

Anyone with information should contact Breaux Bridge Police us at 337-332-2186.
