HOUMA, La. – An ex-Subway employee turned himself in after robbing the store in order to support his “MoJo” habit, according to the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office.
On the night of April 23, deputies responded to a burglary at the Subway located on West Park Avenue in Houma and discovered that the front glass door of the business was destroyed, TPSO said.
The suspect stole $200 in cash, according to the sheriff’s office.
During the investigation, detectives pinned Dillon Hebert, a previously fired employee, as a person of interest. When deputies attempted to locate him, they found that he was no longer living with his parents and did not have a permanent address, TPSO said.
On Monday, Hebert, 18, turned himself in and admitted to the burglary, deputies said.
He said that after losing his job, he still needed money to support his “MoJo” habit, according to the sheriff’s office.
He was arrested for simple burglary and booked into the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex on a $35,000 bond. His arraignment date was set for August 6.
