A trail camera stolen in October is offering clues as to the suspect in the case.

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards told WWL-TV that the camera, used to take photos of deer and other wildlife and primarily used by hunters, was stolen from property on Holloway Road in Roseland on Oct. 24.

The high-tech camera is equipped with cellular service so hunters can access the photos remotely. On Thursday night, the owners received a photo of a man who may not know that the camera was sending the photos.

Tangipahoa officials are asking for the public's help in identifying the person in the photos. Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers in Louisiana at 1-800-554-5245.
