Deputies are looking for a white man who was caught on video burglarizing a car in Prairieville.

Investigators say the car was unlocked in the Quail Creek Subdivision, when man stole some items from it between 1 a.m. and 6 p.m., on August 19, 2014.

They also think the same man is responsible for at least six other car burglaries that happened in the area, around the same time.

Chief Tony Bacla says the suspect probably walked from house to house, pulling on car door handles and stealing from the ones that were left unlocked.

Bacla said everyone should not leave valuable items in plain sight and always lock their car doors.

Anyone with information on these burglaries are urged to contact the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office at 225-621-INFO (4636) or by texting 847411 to our anonymous tip line from any cellular device or Crime Stoppers at 225-344-STOP (7867).
