Lafayette Police have announced they are scaling back their 24-hour service on the Mickey Shunick tips line.

Spokesperson Corporal Paul Mouton says beginning at 7 p.m. Friday night, an answering machine will record all tips on the weekends. Mouton says because the number of tips have decreased, it’s no longer feasible to answer the tips line 24 hours a day.

The tips line will be answered Monday through Friday during normal business hours by detectives. During weekends and after hours, the messages on the tips line will be checked periodically by an investigator.

Meanwhile, Police continue to seek information on the newer model white 4-door Chevrolet Z71 pickup truck that police say traveled in the same direction of Mickey while she was riding her bicycle on St. Landry Street. Police ruled out two other vehicles of interest Wednesday.

If you have any information, you’re urged to call the Lafayette Police Department tips line (337) 291-8633.
