You don't want to mess with this tough-talking Louisiana sheriff's lieutenant. 

St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Lt. Clay Higgins made a Crime Stoppers video to assist in the apprehension of a man who broke into Stelly's Supermarket on July 8. 

Higgins, who is an Army veteran and father of three, says the thief stole hundreds of dollars from the business, which happens to be one of his favorite restaurants and supermarkets. 

"Stelly's has been a local favorite for decades," Higgins says. "The family works hard and is known to be generous. The Stelly family represents southern hospitality at its best."

The officer then takes things into a different direction in the video that has since gone viral with over a million views on YouTube. 

"If you're the man that committed this felony, look at me son, I'm talking to you," he says. "The sheriff likes Stelly's restaurant, and so do I. The food here is good, and the folks are friendly. We're going to identify you, arrest you and put you in a small cell."

"After that, I'm gonna have a cheeseburger here with fries and a Coke and leave a nice tip for the waitress." 

He ends the video by stating, "Congratulations, son. I'm about to make you famous."
