The Bossier Sheriff's Office needs your help finding a man wanted for stealing bundles of shingles from a construction site in Benton.

 Enrique "Rickey" Palmer, 25, of Shreveport, is accused of taking one-and-a-half pallets of shingles worth about $2,800 last week from a home under construction in the 1400 block of Suwannee Lane in Woodlake Ridge subdivision. 

Lynesha McCall and Paul Thompson, both from Shreveport, were taken into custody back on July 30 when a patrol deputy noticed McCall acting suspiciously in the neighborhood. 

Investigators later learned that McCall was acting as lookout for Thompson and Palmer who were loading bundles of shingles into a box style U-Haul truck. 

Detectives believe Palmer, McCall and Thompson may be involved in similar thefts in Bossier and Caddo Parish. 

Anyone with information on Palmer's whereabouts is urged to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100 or the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office at (318) 965-2203.
