Rayne inmate escapes
Rayne Police Chief Carroll Stelly advised that LeRoy Begnaud, 29, aka Chip Begnaud, has escaped from the City of Rayne Jail.
Chief Stelly stated that Begnaud was a trustee and in such a position had authority to be out of a cell to assist with maintenance and cleaning around the station. It is believed that Begnaud had assistance from an outside party with his escape.
Chief Stelly stated that Begnaud was wearing a red and black shirt with a hood, black pants and black and red under armor shoes. Begnaud is believed to have shaved his beard before his escape and may have taken efforts to alter his appearance.
Chief Stelly asks the public to contact 911 or Rayne Police Department (337) 334-4215 if they see Begnaud and not to attempt to capture him.
