The Chitimatcha Tribal Police say they are looking for a man seen on surveillance video punching a slot machine.

Officers say that on January 23,  a person was seen walking into Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel and punching a slot machine. As a result, officials say he allegedly caused just under $500 of damage to the machine.

The person was wearing a camouflage jacket.

He arrived with three other subjects in a vehicle and left on foot walking down Ralph Darden Memorial Parkway.

Due to the vehicle being in the middle of the driveway, police say the license plate camera did not capture the plate and the video does not show a color of the vehicle due early morning and the brake lights.

If you can identify any person or persons involved please contact Det Lt Jada Breaux 337-923-4964 or case 2019-0047
