METAIRIE, LA (WGNO) -- Jefferson Parish deputies are trying to find a man who they say broke into a dozen businesses last month.  It's the latest case to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

All of the businesses are inside the same office building in the 3900 block of the North I-10 Service Road in Metairie.  The crime happened in the early morning hours of September 21.

Deputies identify 28-year-old Kenneth Patterson as the suspect.  They say he used the mail slots in the offices to unlock their doors.  They say he stole laptops, a video projector, a cell phone and cash.

Detectives compared finger prints taken from the scene with others at a crime lab.  They say the prints matched Patterson's.

Deputies say they know where Patterson lives but have been unable to find him.  But they say they found some of the stolen items at the residence.

Once he's arrested, he'll be booked with 12 counts burglary.  Maybe you can help deputies find him.
