Lt. Chase Godeaux of the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office returns to Crime Stoppers and needs your help in locating a hit-and-run suspect.

On May 13, 2023, at approximately 10:00 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the intersection of Compress Road and Highway 182 in the Opelousas area in reference to a hit-and-run crash involving a bicyclist.

The victim, Edrick Johnson, was leaving the BP Valero Gas Station heading towards Compress Road where he was struck by a black SUV.

Due to the poor video recording of the suspect vehicle, it could only be identified as a newer model black or dark colored SUV.

The SUV should have damage between the center of the front bumper and grill area to the driver’s side headlight.
