Alexandria, La (NBC33) — “Cajun Pawn Stars” cast member Fred W. Howell Jr., 46, of Alexandria, was arrested and faces burglary charges for an incident that occurred on Nov. 26.
On that day, Deville Substation deputies responded to the 13000 block of LA Hwy 28 in reference to a burglary.
The victim reported going home to find that someone had forced open a locked backdoor and entered the residence.
The suspect had stolen an X box game console, Nintendo DS, and two lap top computers.
Detectives were able to identify a suspect with the assistance of a local pawn shop where the perpetrator attempted to get assistance removing the victim’s password from the computer.
An arrest warrant was obtained for Howell, and he was arrested and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center for one count of Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling.
Howell was being held on a $5000.00 bond at the time of this release.
