A Jeanerette teen is facing theft and trespassing charges after he allegedly stole a piece of heavy machinery from a local business.
Deputies say witnesses saw the teen driving a front-end loader from a business on LA 318 and into town. Jeanerette police arrested the teen before transferring him to the custody of the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office.
The suspect has been released to a guardian's custody pending court proceedings.
