Scott Police Chief Chad Leger says they are trying to identify the person who can be seen in a surveillance video.

According to Leger, they are trying to identify a person that they say is a "person of interest" in an ongoing investigation.

The man can be seen entering a business on Asset Avenue in Scott on Wednesday, March 3.

After that according to Chief Leger, the man can be seen getting into a Ford Expedition and driving away. They do not know what direction the man was headed in. The vehicle is an older model car.

All of this happened very early on that Wednesday morning, and as part of the investigation, they are trying to identify this white male. He is described by Leger as wearing black jeans along with a gray sweatshirt. He is also thought to have light-colored hair.

If you think you recognize this person, or if you recognize anything in the surveillance photo Leger is hoping you will call their police department at 337-233-3715.

You also have the option of calling Lafayette Crime Stoppers to give any tips. They can be reached at 337-232-TIPS (8477). You can give your information anonymously if you like.
