Press Release -

December 5, 2016

THIBODAUX – An Assumption Parish man was convicted Wednesday of burglarizing property in Kraemer Wednesday afternoon following a two-day jury trial before a Lafourche Parish court.

Johnny P. Vedros, Jr., was charged with burglarizing an elderly victim’s shed on several occasions prior to October 2, 2015.  After law enforcement installed surveillance cameras on the property, video of two males entering the property was obtained, ultimately leading to the arrest of Vedros and a co-defendant, Michael Bourgeois.

"The defendant took advantage of and burglarized the property of a 78 old victim who was using the items stolen as a means of enjoying his retirement,” said Assistant District Attorney Shaun George, who along with Rene’ Gautreaux prosecuted the case. “We were confident in our case and are extremely satisfied that the jury reached a just verdict.”

Bourgeois, who has already been convicted of simple burglary for the same offense, testified against the defendant at trial. Bourgeois admitted that he and Vedros took four boat hulls, two motors and an air compressor from the victim’s property, as well as several other items to be sold as scrap.

Vedros faces up to twelve years in prison as a result of the conviction.  Formal sentencing is set for January 26, 2017 before the Hon. Chris Boudreaux, who presided over the trial.
