Deputies with the St. Landry Parish Sheriff's Office needs the public's help locating a registered sex offender who targeted a juvenile victim through social media.

Deputies say 24-year-old Marlon Eaglin is wanted for multiple warrants, including four counts of felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, possession of schedule I CDS and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Captain Megan Vizena said, “The investigation determined that Eaglin had targeted the victim through social media. After the victim met with Eaglin, they engaged in sexual behavior.”

Vizena stated, “Drugs and weapons were found in Eaglin’s vehicle that was located at his mother’s residence. As a convicted felon, Eaglin is not permitted to have any weapons in his possession. As a registered sex offender, Eaglin is also obligated to report a complete description of any vehicle that he is using for the sex offender registry. A description was never provided to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office; his court assigned sex offender advocate. He has done everything that he could possibly do to run from his obligations.”

“If you have ANY information regarding the whereabouts of Eaglin, you are urged to call St. Landry Crime Stoppers at 337-948-TIPS(7477),” Vizena added.

Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office also has an outstanding warrant for failing to register his vehicle description to their sex offender division. His last known addresses are in Carencro, LA and Arnaudville, LA.
