Ascension Parish (NBC33) — The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office has asked for the public’s help in locating Shane Anthony Richey, 42, of Maurepas. Richey is wanted for Unauthorized Use of a Movable and Felony Theft.
On Friday, Nov. 15, the owner of a car dealership in Gonzales told police that a white male took a car off the lot for a test drive. Richey told the dealer that he wanted to take the car down the street to show his wife, but he never returned with the car.
