Calcasieu Parish Deputies are searching for a burglary suspect wanted for stealing from a Lake Charles business. 

On May 24, 2018, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies say they responded to a business on Highway 14 in Lake Charles in reference to a burglary and theft. 

During the investigation, detectives say they reviewed video surveillance from the business and learned on May 23 at approximately midnight an unknown man allegedly gained access into the business by entering the back gate of the property and prying the door open with a crowbar.  Once inside surveillance shows the man picking up a portable battery charger and exiting the building. 

On May 25, 2018, CPSO deputies responded to the same business again in reference to a burglary and theft.  Once detectives reviewed the video surveillance they witnessed the same man return to the business twice on the night of May 24.  He again entered the back gate and used a screwdriver to pry open the door. 

Once inside, he allegedly stole a rolling battery charger and a portable air compressor.      

If anyone has any information regarding this theft or can identify the suspect seen in the photographs contact the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office at 491-3605 or Crime Stoppers at 439-2222.
