Police identified the suspect as 37-year-old Christopher Anthony Guidroz of Arnaudville. Video surveillance from area residences allegedly showed Guidroz exiting his vehicle, knocking on doors, and taking items from under the carport or back patio of the residences.

Guidroz is then allegedly seen entering his vehicle and leave the area. An arrest warrant has been obtained for Guidroz by Scott Police Department. The Scott Police Department asked the community for help in identifying Guidroz through photos captured of hime during the alleged theft incidents.
