Police in Morgan City and New Iberia appear to be looking for the same suspect in some thefts.

"We are aware of the incident from New Iberia. We do believe there is some sort of connection between the two and are working with New Iberia Police Department to compare notes to apprehend the suspect," said Morgan City Police Lt. John Schaff. "There were two different vehicles used in each of the crimes."

In both cases, the suspect was caught on surveillance cameras. In the Morgan City case, the vehicle she left in also was caught on camera. If you know who this person is or have information about an incident, you can call the agency closest to you.

In the Morgan City case, the female allegedly entered a office at a local business and took items from that office. Anyone knowing the identity of the female or recognizes the vehicle being driven is asked to contact the Morgan City Police Department Detectives Division @ (985)380-4605. You may remain anonymous.
