LAKE CHARLES, La. — A Louisiana sheriff’s office is looking for an inmate who walked away from a litter detail in Lake Charles.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office says 38-year-old Anthony D. Collins Jr. fled about 11 a.m. Thursday. He was last seen wearing an orange jumpsuit, which was later found dumped on a city street.

Collins was serving time for drug charges and a probation violation on bank fraud charges.

The sheriff’s office asks if anyone knows of Collins’ whereabouts to call investigators at 337-491-3605.
