Crowley Police served an arrest warrant for felony theft regarding an investigation which has been ongoing for the last several months. On March 30, 2016, members of the Crowley Police Department located and arrested Joseph Wilturner, Jr., 45 of Crowley on the warrant.

The warrant stems from an investigation into the burial of an individual where monies which were not used for funeral expenses should have been returned to the deceased persons family but were not. Numerous requests were made by the family to have the difference returned prior to the investigation.

“This investigation does not have any ties to the matter which the Acadia Parish Corners Office handled earlier” stated Chief KP Gibson.

Wilturner was booked into the Acadia Parish Jail.
