Police are asking for the public's help as they search for a suspect they’ve dubbed the “Binky Bandit” after a burglary Wednesday at a home in Lacy Lakeview from which a number of firearms were stolen.

The suspect, shown in photos posted on the Lacy Lakeview Police Department’s Facebook page, had an infant’s pacifier in his mouth before he donned a mask.

“Yes, that is a pacifier in his mouth,” police wrote in the post.

Police later identified the man in the picture and said an arrest warrant has been issued for Justin Allen Waits, 23, of Lacy Lakeview.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact Officer Casey Lander at (254) 799-2479.
