Aug 31, 2012

A 22-year-old Lafayette man has been arrested for allegedly looting a downtown office building during Tropical Storm Isaac.

The Advertiser reports Johnathon George was booked with looting and is being held in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on a $25,000 bond.

Cpl. Kyle Soriez says officers on routine patrol saw George in the downtown Lafayette area, when a mandatory curfew was in effect.

Soriez said the officers found in George's possession multiple computers and other electronic devices, which had identifying marks linking the electronics to the downtown business.

It was unclear whether George has an attorney.
