Port Barre Police have arrested a 14-year-old in connection with the theft of several televisions from the Good Shepherd Montessori School.

An employee opening the school this morning found the televisions missing, and that someone had broken in through the back door. 

Police began investigating and evidence led to the 14-year-old, who lived near the school and was trying to sell the televisions. 

Police went to the juvenile’s home, received consent to search from the parents, and discovered the televisions hidden in an inoperable vehicle on the property, police said.

The teen was arrested and booked with burglary, criminal damage to property and theft. The televisions will be returned to the Montessori school, police said.
