HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) -

The Hammond Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a person who stole a coin that was inlaid into the cement.

The coin, or gold medallion as some have referred to it as, was at the old Hancock Bank in Hammond, and has been there for years. However, that building is now the new Hammond Police Department. 

The person was caught on surveillance video.  It appears a man with what appears to be a crowbar walks up to the area where the coin was inlaid and kneels down.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hammond Police Department at 985-277-5705.
