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.

Police say Ramsey then went to the store's automotive section where he reportedly did the same thing.

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.

Those with information in this case are asked to call the Leesville Police Department at 337-238-0331 or Crime Stoppers at 337-239-2233.

    By tonight, rain chances will be low. We will start with partly cloudy skies, becoming mostly clear late. Low temperatures will be in the low 70s. A few places north of I-10 will be in the 60s. It will still feel muggy overnight, thanks to the humidity. There could be some areas of patchy fog in the early morning hours on Monday. As we go through next week, the big story remains warm temperatures.
