Noel Charles Roy, 45, of was sentenced last week to two years in prison for simple burglary and theft of crawfish.
He was arrested in March 2008 after word got around that he was selling crawfish in Eunice for $5 to $10 per sack.
It turned out that the crawfish had been stolen from a Mamou resident’s freezer.
The loot was 48 sacks, according to police reports at the time.
The sacks weighted about 35 pounds each, meaning Roy boosted and was peddling more than 1,500 pounds of the Cajun food staple.
Arrest warrants were also issued in the case for Sammi Jo Ray, 23, and Brandon Ray, both of Duralde Highway, Mamou.
Information about the status of those charges was not available.
