ZACHARY, LA (WAFB) - A manhunt for a suspect who is considered armed and dangerous has been called off, but officials are asking the public to call 911 immediately if they know anything regarding the whereabouts of the suspect.
Officials with the Zachary Police Department confirm that they are searching for Andrew "Red" Thompson. They say he is wanted in connection to a home invasion. They did not provide any information relative to that incident.
The manhunt began around 10 a.m. Thursday morning. Area schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution. That lockdown has since been lifted.
Residents in the area of Old Scenic between Pride Port Hudson and Church Street (Hwy 64) were asked to "lock all exterior doors and remain inside."
