A suspect wanted in connection with a burglary in St. Mary Parish is now behind bars in Eunice.
Police arrested Ricky Tate, Jr., early Sunday morning after a woman called 911, claiming that Tate would not allow her to get out of his truck.
Officials say they found a pipe and suspected meth in the truck during a search.
St. Mary Parish sheriff's deputies say Tate broke into a warehouse on LA 182 in Garden City in December and stole power saws, copper pipe, and brass fittings.
Tate is facing vagrancy and drug charges in Eunice. He remains in the Eunice City Jail on $15,750 bond. He will be transported to St. Mary Parish once he meets his bond obligation.
