During the early morning hours of June 17, video surveillance showed a suspect walking around the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office Community Corrections Campus in the 100 block of Poydras St.

Once inside, a vending machine was pried open, and cash was stolen, according to police. 

Police say the suspect appears walks with a slight limp as he steps with his right leg.
