The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a Donaldsonville man wanted in connection to a home invasion.

According to Sheriff Jeff Wiley, deputies were called out to a home on Anderson Road in Geismar early Tuesday morning. They were dispatched in regards to a home invasion and kidnapping with multiple shots fired. 

Investigators found out that 22-year-old Morris Miles, of Donaldsonville, and four other suspects broke into the house and told the owner they had recently shot someone. The suspects forced the owner to drive them from the house and drop them off near the intersection of Hwy 73 and Hwy 30 in Geismar. The owner was then able to leave unharmed.

Miles and the unidentified subjects were armed with hand guns and an assault rifle and last seen driving away in a dark colored GMC SUV with other suspects.

APSO found evidence of multiple shots fired at Anderson and Stevenson Road. Investigators learned that one of the bullets struck a vehicle that fled the scene before deputies arrived.

Sheriff Wiley said there have been no reports of anyone being hit during the shooting.

Miles is wanted for home invasion and second-degree kidnapping. He is also wanted by APSO for questioning about the shooting that happened before the home invasion. 

APSO says Miles is considered armed and dangerous. 

Investigators are also looking for information on the identities of the other suspects involved. 

Anyone with information on Miles' whereabouts or the other suspects' identities is urged to call APSO at (225) 621-4636. Anonymous tips can also be texted to APSO at 847411 or called into Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
