LEESVILLE, LA (KPLC) -

Leesville authorities are seeking the public's help in catching an alleged brazen bandit.

Leesville Police say Roy G. Ramsey walked into the Wal-Mart store's gardening section, spotted an unattended cash register that he pried open and took cash from.

Ramsey got away with thousands of dollars and did $12,000 worth of damage to the registers, according to police.

Authorities said Ramsey is wanted in connection with numerous thefts in several jurisdictions under similar circumstances.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is also looking for Ramsey, authorities said.
