LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has released a surveillance video in the hopes of identifying a suspect involved in connection with multiple vehicle burglaries that happened in Lake Charles.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said deputies received several complaints in reference to a vehicle burglary on Jerry Street and on South Chateau Circle in Lake Charles on Aug. 21. During further investigation, deputies learned the suspect stole a purse containing several debit and credit cards from the car on Jerry Street. It was also discovered one of the stolen credit cards was used at a store on Nelson Road and a pharmacy on Ryan Street on the same night the card was stolen. The suspect also attempted to use the credit card at a store on Highway 14. In addition, one of the stolen debit cards was found inside a recovered truck that was reported stolen through the Lake Charles Police Department from a residence on South Chateau Circle. Surveillance footage shows the suspect at the local grocery store where the stolen card was used.
