ASSUMPTION PARISH, LA — A man and a juvenile have been placed under arrest for their involvement in a burglary of a home.
On April 30, just before 11:00 p.m., the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary in progress at a residence on the 4800 block of Highway 308 in Napoleonville.
The homeowner told deputies that he had left his residence for approximately 45 minutes and received a call from a neighbor who saw someone pacing back and forth in the driveway.
When he arrived back at his home, he saw a flash of light inside the residence, and soon saw two subjects running from the residence. The owner gave chase, but lost sight of them after falling to the ground.
Officials immediately arrived on scene and began a search. Minutes later, deputies found a reported stolen money pouch, and later, located a suspect hiding in a nearby paper recycle bin.
The suspect was transported to the Criminal Investigative Division for questioning where he later admitted to his involvement along with a 15 year old in the burglary and theft of a coin pouch and push lawn mower.
Ronald Washington, Jr., 17, was charged with Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling and Theft under $300. He was booked in the Assumption Parish Detention Center.
The 15-year-old male juvenile was booked for the same above mentioned charges and later released to his father.
