VILLE PLATTE, La. — The Evangeline Parish Sheriff's Office have arrested a Ville Platte man involved in a burglary that was wanted after escaping custody from East Baton Rouge Parish.

EPSO say that the only suspect allegedly involved in the burglary at Flat Town Farm Supply in Ville Platte has been arrested on the charge of Possession of Stolen Things.

Early Thursday morning, EPSO detectives arrested Michael N. Arvie, 42, without incident at his residence of 6582 Pine Point Road in Ville Platte.

Investigators say that Arvie was safely transported to the Evangeline Parish Jail where he was booked on the charge of Possession of Stolen Things.

An Affidavit and Warrant of Arrest had been previously signed by 13th Judicial District Judge Chuck West with a bond of $25,000.

During Arvie's booking process, investigators say they learned that he was wanted by East Baton Rouge Parish.

Arvie escaped from the custody of East Baton Rouge Correctional Facility staff on or about April 2.

Investigators say that Arvie was assigned to a Work Release Program when he managed to escape. He was immediately classified as a Fugitive At Large with an active outstanding Felony Warrant for Simple Escape.

EPSO say it has placed a hold on Arvie for the East Baton Rouge Correctional Center.

Arvie also has an active outstanding Warrant for the Louisiana Child Support Enforcement a division of the Department of Children and Family Services.
