Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives are searching for a suspect that attempted to break into a Sulphur business in the early morning hours of January 7.

Detectives were dispatched to a business on Highway 1256 in Sulphur in reference to an attempted burglary and property damage. 

During the investigation, after reviewing video surveillance, detectives learned earlier that morning, between 1:40 and 2:10 a.m. an unknown white male attempted to pry open the doors to the business.  Detectives also observed the suspect attempt to pry open a change dispenser and ice machine in an attempt to remove the currency from inside but was unsuccessful.
