Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Law enforcement is asking for your help in any information leading to the arrest of a thief.

Police say sometime after 11 o'clock on January 29, 2013, in surveillance video, a man is seen scoping out the area inside West Ouachita High School.

After taking a gander around the building, the man stops by the vending machine for a cool drink, then, police say, the man searched several offices that was not captured by the hidden cameras.

That search didn't turn up empty. The sticky bandit believed to be between 28 to 30 years-old and approximately no taller than 5 feet 8 inches, sits a black bag on the table. Inside it, contained an envelope with money. He then picks up an even bigger bag to place the stolen goods inside.

Investigators say the heartless thief took an unknown amount of cash, that took students two weeks to collect. According to police, the 14 day fundraiser was intended for a child who has Down Syndrome and needed heart surgery.

Police are now asking for your help to find the culprit behind the crime.

If you know can recognize this man seen here, give crimestoppers a call, that number is (318) 388-2274.
