A Lafayette man has been booked in a string of Scott thefts.

Larry Gobert, 26, was booked with eight counts of theft so far, but may face additional charges.

He was identified last month as a suspect pictured in surveillance video from several Scott businesses.

After they got an arrest warrant for Gobert, Scott Police learned that other agencies in Lafayette also are looking for him in connection with similar incidents.

Gobert turned himself in to the Lafayette jail on Monday. His bond is set at $4,000.
