LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a man after he reportedly fled a halfway house located on Canvasback Street in Lake Charles back in December.

Brandt L. Brossette, 24, reportedly has multiple tattoos on his body, including one on each of his hands - on the right hand he has the word "hater" and on the left hand, the word "hurter".

Brossette was originally arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center back in September 2008 and was charged with two counts of simple burglary.

He was released in October 2010 into a work release program before going to the halfway house.

Residents are asked to be on the lookout for Brossette, who may still be in the area. Reportedly, he has relatives in Sulphur.

Authorities say anyone found to be aiding and abetting Brossette will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

If anyone sees him or knows of his whereabouts, you are asked to contact the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office at 337-491-3724, Crimestoppers at 337-439-2222, or 911.

    If you don't remember we just had an election last month, don't feel bad, voter turnout was abysmal.  However, that doesn't change the cost of holding the election, meaning when hardly anyone shows up to vote, the cost per voter who actually casts a ballot is high. In fact, here in Calcasieu Parish, it would be cheaper to send each voter to see a movie, than it is to let them in the voting booth. Lynn Jones loves elections!  And why not. He's been involved in the electoral ...

    Months of undercover work led Calcasieu's Combined Anti-Drug Team (CAT) to perform a drug raid on two homes in Lake Charles back in late October. Six were arrested and booked, but one of those suspects was able to get back on the streets that same day, leaving many upset, including city council member Luvertha August.
