The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Police Department has identified a suspect in the vandalism case involving racial slurs two weeks ago at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

An arrest warrant has been obtained for Gerald C. Knorr Jr., 58, for institutional vandalism more than $500 and criminal trespass, according to Lieutenant Billy Abrams, spokesman for the UL Police Department. He is not a UL student or employee, stated Abrams. Law enforcement officers are searching for Knorr, who does not have a valid address.

Institutional vandalism more than $500 is a felony punishable by up to two years in jail and/or up to a $1,000 fine. Criminal trespass is a misdemeanor.
