Tips through Crime Stoppers and the assistance of the Lafayette City Marshal’s Office resulted in the arrest of an Abbeville man for the theft of a bulldozer worth over $150,000, according to a news release from St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz.
Arrested was Rickie John Richard, 40, of the 100 block of Jenni Lane, Abbeville. He is charged with one count of theft. Bail was set at $5,000.
The arrest stems from the July 22 complaint from a contractor working on Union Pacific Railroad property when his 2000 Komatsu bulldozer was stolen from a work location.
