The Lafayette Police Department is attempting to identify a suspect who stole a car from a residence in Lafayette and whose photo was captured on a traffic camera.

The vehicle, a 2008 Toyota Tundra, was stolen on December 9, 2010, at approximately 3:30 am, from a secure garage in Lafayette. The suspect’s photo was captured by a red light camera not long after the incident occurred as he sped through an intersection.

The vehicle was later recovered in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, near the intersection of Regatta and El Scott Avenue. The suspect also allegedly used credit cards left in the vehicle by the victim to order cell phones and have them delivered to an address in the 9000 block of El Scott Avenue.

Anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the suspect is encouraged to call the Lafayette Police Department at 337-291-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 337-232-TIPS.
