Opelousas Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect involved in the armed robbery of the Game Stop located on Creswell Lane.

Opelousas Police urge anyone with any information related to these robberies or information related to the pictured person to contact the Opelousas Police Department at 337-948-2500 or through Crime Stoppers (337-948-TIPS, [] or by using the P3 mobile App.)

Tipsters can remain anonymous. Tipsters can received up to a $1000.00 cash reward for information leading to an arrest.
