Acadia Parish Sheriff's deputies are asking for help identifying this man who was caught on camera while breaking into a home on Bosco Highway on the border of Acadia and St. Landry Parishes. They believe he's responsible for numerous break-ins and thefts in the parish, and in Lafayette, Evangeline and St. Landry Parishes.
The suspect will kick in doors or pry them open then steal electronics, jewelry and weapons when no one was home, Public Information Office Maxine Trahan said. He's driving a late model Buick Park Ave., possibly 1990s or early 2000 model. If you can identify the man or his vehicle, you're asked to call the Acadia Parish Sheriff's Office at 788-8700.
St. Landry Parish confirms they have unsolved burglaries, and this man could be their suspect. We're still gathering information from other parishes. Authorities encourage neighbors to be on the lookout for each other and call 911 if you see someone suspicious on someone's property.
