A 36-year-old Sulphur man is accused of burglarizing a church.
This morning, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched in reference to a burglary alarm that had been triggered at a church on Prater Road in Sulphur, according to police.
Upon arrival, deputies were advised a man, later identified as Reginald J. Poullard, shattered a window on the back door and entered the church. Poullard allegedly rummaged through the church and the church office, but when confronted by a church employee, he fled on foot.
While reviewing surveillance video from a nearby business, deputies recognized Poullard, who was seen on the video walking toward the church prior to the burglary, and running from the church following the burglary, according to police. A few hours later, deputies located Poullard hiding in the attic of his home. When questioned by deputies, Poullard allegedly confirmed the allegations.
He was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with burglary of a religious building; theft under $500; and criminal damage to property.
Bond was set at $70,000.
