HOUMA, LA (NBC33) — Was it for the cash, or to keep as a collector’s item? A man is wanted for stealing an entire phone booth from a gas station.
The Houma Police Department reports that the phone booth was stolen from Sarah’s Discount on W. Park Ave. on Wednesday, Feb. 6. We’re told an unknown male suspect stole the booth, which was located next to one of the store’s gas pumps.
