SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) - Slidell Police are asking the public's help with identifying a house burglar who was caught on video.

The suspected burglar tried to disguise himself with a towel after he spotted the camera. The burglar then stole the actual surveillance camera, along with a Playstation 4, police said.

On Monday, Slidell Police were contacted in reference to a residential burglary in the 2100 block of Park Dr. in Slidell. The burglary occurred shortly after 11 a.m.

Although the suspect stole the homeowner's surveillance camera in an attempt to cover his tracks, it was also stored in the system's cloud.

Slidell Police are now looking for help identifying the suspect. The suspect is described to be a tall, thin African-American male with a large afro-style haircut. The suspect was also wearing a large cross necklace.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kyle Taylor at 985-646-6174 or Tipsters may also call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111. You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
