CARENCRO, La. — The Current is reporting that, according to anonymous sources, Amazon is looking to purchase the old Evangeline Downs property in Carencro for a large fulfillment center with the potential to create hundreds of jobs for Lafayette Parish.

The Current states that it spoke to the owner of the NE Evangeline Thruway site, local real estate investor Carrol Castille, who declined to discuss any specifics of a potential property sale citing a confidentiality agreement.

“I’m under a confidentiality agreement with a large land purchaser,”Castille tells The Current. “I have not seen one document with Amazon’s name on it.”
